    I just showed this to my wife and said, "This is the most beautiful knife I have ever seen."

    She did not get the hint...

    I bought a Lon Humphrey knife a while back... it's an incredible blade. The one listed here is, too, from the looks of it. But I need another Lon Humphrey like I need another .22 rifle. <Sigh!>

    I showed my wife the comment I posted... She just rolled her eyes. I want this knife, but I don't think it's going to happen right now. Haha.

    Nope. I know I don't need to wait for permission. If i had an extra $300 laying around, i would have bought it, but i didn't and i didn't want to put $300 on a credit card.

    The person that bought it is getting a beautiful knife. I wish that person was me, but now is not the time for me to get a $300 knife.

    I'm relieved this sold. I don't "need" this knife but I do "want" it something fierce. It's a beautiful blade and I bet it feels good in the hand.

    Glad it sold

    I like knives, but I don't know anything about fancy knives. I carry a folder everyday, and I still own a few fixed blades that I carried in Iraq (benchmade and ka-bar).

    This thread has got me itching to start carrying a fixed blade every day. But, if I carried one, I would want to carry it horizontally in the small of my back "scout carry".

    I am an NC resident with a NC CHP. I carry a concealed handgun daily, but I think it's still illegal to have a fixed blade "concealed" under my shirt tail. Do you all agree? Is this illegal in NC?

    That looks nice, but I think I would prefer a longer blade.

    What have you got for sale that's a few inches longer? How about a Bark River MK B9? Or a Lon Humphrey Hellhound or Reaver?

    No MKB9 those you have to custom order now I believe. Bark river makes plenty of stuff that you can scout carry. The legion had a sheath that can be carried like that as well
