    I've had this model heat treated for a while by Bos but never completed them. Here I finished one with Burgandy Micarta and bead blasted the handles - really looks good. Other than that it's just a good, simple, BIG knife!

    That's a nice one !!!!!..... [applaud] not going to last long.... How's the balance on that "Beast"?

    It balances right at the finger choil - it feels lighter than you'd think because the balance is so nice! I did not taper or drill holes in the tang because I felt the weight would be needed to offset the blade.

    Burgundy Linen Micarta, I think. I don't have much and decided to try it on here. I have some Brown Canvas Micarta too that will look awesome.

    There was a guy on USN selling a big Priority Mail box of Micarta for $60. It's good for handles or just as blocks for different jobs. If you're interested I'll look him up - it was a whole lot of Micarta!

    I guess it's too cheap - no one's buying it! Ok, $250! [gone]
