The knives from my WIP thread, HERE!
There are two sizes of the same knife here, the two on the right are the Muntjac, they measure in at 185mm overall with a cutting edge of around 85mm... The five larger ones on the left are, for now at least, named the MuntjaX (X for extra, see what I did there? ) and these are new, brand new as in these are the first MuntjaX ever made, these are sized at 225mm overall with 110mm of cutting edge, as you'll know all are made from the SF100 grade of SS...
At the time these were photo'd, with the exception of one, they have not yet been blast finished on the handles, I think I will leave them this way for now so any future possible purchaser has the option of this brighter polished finish or indeed the blasted one, of course whichever way is chosen the blades can remain the bright satin you see here and the cost will remain the same...
From left to right there you see;
#545 with tan canvas Micarta over red liners SOLD
#546 which has the same tan canvas Micarta but in this case it is cross cut, it has less shaping too, what I would call barrel shaped, not the palm swell and flared butt format
#547 with green canvas Micarta over black liners, this one does have the blast finish SOLD
#548 has black/green linen Micarta over green liners SOLD
#549 is the same as 545 SOLD
#551 bears green canvas Micarta over black liners SOLD
#552 to finish off has the same as 548, black/green linen over green liners SOLD
Here a few more photos, all remain in the same order just from a different perspective...
And slightly closer in...
Now the plan for these has always been this spec as detailed in that thread;
Satin polished flat ground blades of the SF100 blade steel at 3mm stock
Two SS Hidden/Corby bolt fixings
SS lined lanyard tube
Kydex sheath, with an option of either RH or LH carry and either vertical or horizontal carry
My goal for pricing them has been an all in £295 each.
But my thinking has changed, I am offering them here and now with no sheaths and that option of blasted or not grips, this makes my life easier and reduces my outlay in what could turn out to stock on my shelf, as predominantly I make to order stock is not good for me, I don't like keeping a stock...
I don't make sheaths myself, I never have, I concentrate on the knives and rely on expert sheath makers, to organise the sheaths for these not only sees and outlay of cash for me but possibly more than that a big investment of my time, and increased RMSD postal costs, I have to pack them to send them, go to the PO, pay for the sheaths and the return post, unpack them, sort them, repack them and post to you...
As I said that is time and money in what might not sell...
So, all the above knives are offered for sale as is, with a healthy discount to £195 all in, that get's the sheath'less knife to your door via RMSD in the UK and includes any payment fees.
What this also does of course, which is very important to me, is gets the knives out there, into the hands of the folk who will use them, the proof of the pudding is in the eating as they say, well lets see how these get on
As and when any sell I will mark it as such in the list in this post.
One more thing, I cannot post any away until Monday, I am away now until then so the earliest your knife will arrive will be Tuesday next week.
Cheers all, thank you, Stu.
