Deal fell through so this one is back up. Please read for minor changes.
Allright well up for trade is a two tone combat troodon. Now please read fully before making an offer as i must disclose some information first. Many may know of my combat troodon project that went south with its purple anodizing job. This knife that i am trading has the original blade from that knife. The original handle was less than 2 weeks old before i sent it out for anodizing and was never used for anything. What happened is i use the purple combat troodon as my daily otf user but I didnt want to mess up the two tone blade since i liked it so i purchased a new bead blast version and swapped them out. This handle is from a bead blast version. I dont know if microtech keeps tabs on what blades go into what serialized handles but i doubt they do. The knife has no other modifications or alterations besides the spring bending trick to eliminate "spring sing". The blade is S30-V and it operates flawlessly. I know it might be frowned upon that i swapped blades but to be honest no one would know unless i said something but honesty is what i believe in so im not gonna pass this off as completely original.
If anyone is interested im looking for a single edge scarab, makora I, or halo III. the only other knife i would consider is a IKBS equipped 29cm balisong.
im going to put a trade value at Around $400 due to the blade swap but the knife is in great condition otherwise. There is a tiny bit of anodizing missing from around one of the screw holes. it will include the two tone box and papers. No sheath was included with either knife but i will throw in a microtech extra large sheath due to the issues i found with the knife. This would make a great user that hasnt been used. Then again production knives arent the greatest collectable even if there wasnt a blade swap issue.
Picture of the anodizing. The dent is a factory mess up. Im not sure what they were doing. But it is anodized over.
