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?

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?
