    Thanks guys, for all your comments. To be honest this is my about my 10/11th try...with quite a couple of "gooi-messe" in between. "Gooi hulle teen die vloer of muur..."
    Spec's: Bohler N690 S/S x 5mm, Hardened to 58RC, OAL = 284m, Brass liner's/pin's with Rosewood scales.(Got a bit lazy when it came to the fitting of the brass bolsters...)
    Top one is my "Rimpel-Stinkel"....everyone should have a fantasy knife...
