    Idk why I did it, for some reason I thought it would be a good idea to cover his signature. But... That really doesn't probably matter tbh...

    This is actually a pic he sent to me, then I just blurred it. Knife center forgot to include the cert of authenticity, so he said he'd ship one to to me

    Yeah, idk why, but I'm sure it was just an odd, uncommon mistake.

    Nice score!

    Ive been looking at his knives for a while, but the wide gap in the handles near the tang always bothered me.

    I hear that he has just figured out bushings and it'll be an option on his future knives if bearings aren't your thing.

    Yeah, I like the look, but think for a flipper, i agree that a small-gapped, bushing knife would be king (this one weirdly flips pretty damn well though, who knew!).

    For an extremely high-end, sort of flipping dedicated knife, I'd do a custom-order from Craig Camerer. I already have one of his bushing mid-techs, (which is pretty amazing) l, so I wanted to try something else. I heard Craig's custom knives are insane though... If I was in the market, I'd message Craig for a tapered, bushing, kukri spring latch without a finger-groove... But maybe someday.


    I think Heibel's bushing knives will be sick

    Don't think so. Send him a message, he responds quick, and is really helpful.
