    This is a free item (Gift) but I will entertain a return gift if the other party (that'd be YOU) feels obligated by regional social norms or generous or whatever.

    If more that one person would desire the item I will entertain making a choice as to the new owner based on some criteria as yet undetermined.

    I reserve the right to withdraw an item for any reason (bickering would be one reason).

    I will present the item as best I understand it, I will list faults that I know (and recall). If the item is dangerous (could put an eye out or something without special instructions) I may limit its demise to someone I know and trust.

    I assume the new user will use the item as designed and intended and for lawful purposes. If the new user is injured with the item I will believe it is due to negligence, willful ignorance or stupidity (or any combination of two or in extreme cases all three).

    I used this knife once or twice on deer. It's a delicate sort of knife, not a sturdy pry tool or a survival knife. The handle is Linen Micarta and the blade is ??? metal of some sort (I've forgotten).

    The sheath has some blood stain and dirt on it.

    I believe we can do that. Understand that this is a delicate type knife and not a tough tool, Mr Dunn (I bought this a number of years ago) was very clear in telling me that this is a knife and not a chisel or pry bar.

    Awsome skinner

    Dave that looks like a beautifull skinning knife my father has a Boker skinner with a verry thin blade like this beautifull knife and it is just amasing to use but it is a delecate instrument not a chopping device.

    Cheers Bill

    90 bucks!!! Damn it :mad:

    In all seriousness, if another person can get use from an item I have stowed away (and will likely never use) then putting it to use seems proper..... And, I enjoy it (its also sort of my penance for a mean and nasty younger life).



    90 bucks.... (I hope my wife doesn't see this).
