Heh, nice! Would be sweet with a Wa handle. Are these ground down thinner BTE than the Addict/Artifex? It looks like it's slightly different profile than the 240mm Artifex besides the extra length?

So tempted to try one next to one of my many Sabs... so very tempted. Nice looking knife!

If it were thinner and had a wa handle, I would not hesitate to buy.

Would above all be interested in a strong distal taper. That is the feature I miss from time to time with basic J-knives and love about Sabs.

Where did BDL go?

I was about to inquire, but wasn't sure where to do so.

Heh, this knife is a beast! Taller, longer and a bit thicker than the Addict. I may keep it as a Western handle to help balance it out, or use a heavy wood for the handle. This would make a mean workhorse type knife with the extra heft to it.

I was looking for this thread yesterday for hours and couldn't find it.

Taz, do you have one? I got one last week and have used it a couple of times and am loving it at work and have been reaching for it more than my Richmond Laser.

Also, someone wanted a choil shot. :)

And it is shaped more like Nogent, definitely not a Chef au Ritz or 2Lion.

Love the profile on that Chef Au Ritz. That richmond is a BEAST. What would you use something that heavy for?
