    Hey M.O.,
    What do you charge for one of those beauties!? I Gotta Have One!! I'm a FMA practitioner myself and can see what you were thinking when designing it. "It's like a finger pointing to the moon, but don't concentrate on the finger, or you will miss all that heavenly glory." HAHAHAHA! Man, I gotta get one! Please let me know when you'll have another batch available. Thanks!

    Thanks buddy! I've had several SEA and Filipino martial artists tell me they dig the design which is exactly what I was going for.

    *excellent use of Bruce Lee quote

    I'll send a pm with the details.

    The green canvas micarta and satin finish does it for me! I'm short on funds and trying to save money for a delta sa180 1x42 belt sander so I can sharpen/convex/grind some of my own stuff, but I just might push that back.

    Is the convex edge standard for the FOS, or was it a request? I love a good convex edge.

    It's all I do since reading Master Hossoms sharpening tutorial :leatherdevil :



    I've been real happy with the performance of the polished convex edge.

    Convex edges rule everything from cutting, slicing, to chopping!

    Here are some pictures of my friend's convexed edges he put on some Busse knives. Norcal Hunter knows him, it's Ban.

    My pictures don't really do him justice.

    Great pics! Nice pile of steel.

    Those gleamy polished edges look fantastic. I bet they're some cuttin' sumbitches.

    Thank you brother!

    I'm always like this :panic: until I know the knife I shipped gets where it's going. Glad it made it and that you dig it.
