The knife is with Holidays4Heroes now and it is gorgeous !!!

"This one is hand carved hence the slightly different appearance and the placing of the embossing upon the top of the blade.
The blade is also secured through the hilt.
It's a very nice blade and razor sharp. The pictures honestly don't do it justice."

Glad that was a good result ... unique is an often misused or misapplied word, but this item certainly is unique.

Thanks, twigman for the donation:thumright:

And dread, of course, for parting with a pile of moolah that will potentially get a family to La Torre :)
