    Custom Knife - Combat Tanto

    This was my first, and only remaining, custom knife. I bought it direct from the maker, Keith Coleman, in the late 80's for $325. I'm not sure why a teenager would save that much for a knife, but I did. It's mostly been in a drawer or safe ever since. The blade has never seen any hard use. Handle is black linen micarta. Blade is a little over 8" and its about 13.5" overall. It's 1/4" stock that tapers beautifully to the end of the full tang. It's bead-blasted ATS 34. I've been a gear-run (like "beer-run") for a bit, and I'm not done.... but my wife is. I know that HF isn't the ideal place to sell a knife, but this way if it sells it sells, if not, that's OK too. I've got my eyes on a TrailDesigns Tri-Ti system, so the price is firm at $220. (Two hundred for the stove stuff and the extra to ship / ensure the knife). If interested post here first and them PM me. Thanks.

    Thanks for the bump guys, I figured this would roughly be the level of response. And my feelings aren't hurt a bit. Still for sale though...

    Talk about dragging up an old thread.....

    Just saw this blade in my safe and then remembered this thread. Aw heck, let's loosen up that "firm" price:

    How about $150 shipped CONUS.? PP only please.

    Considering this sold pending payment per PM terms. If the deal falls through I'll relist.
