    Default Short Auction - I'm probably never going to finish this blade

    I'm clearing out some space on the bench and I realize that this and a couple other blades have sat around neglected to quite some time.

    It is about 0.16" thick, about 1.15" wide at the base of the blade, 6" blade length and a hair over 10" overall. It is forged, rough ground and heat treated, made from one of the many Nicholson mill/bastard files I wear out in the shop.

    Not every knifemaker is a smith, and not everybody wishing to start in the knifemaking hobby or to have a handmade knife is yet ready to be. If anybody might like to bring it back to life by finishing it, I propose an auction. Bidding to start at $6, by $0.50 minimum increments and auction to end at 12:00am (midnight) Friday 02/06/2015.

    This must be open to confirmed PayPal members, and I'm afraid I will only ship to US addresses.

    What say you, Wolf Pack?

    I can't participate due to not having paypal, but someone will get a nice blade for a good price.

    Starting to look like I may be keeping it after all.

    Looks like somebody is going to get a fine blade to finish. Being the proud owner of one of Caid's knives, I think you will be happy.

    Yeah, I just hope that I can do some justice to it!
    Certainly going to try. I have some black walnut that Hayshaker sent me, might make some nice handle slabs for it.

    Update: Whilst cleaning up my shop, I found this blade in a coffee can with several other old kitchen knives.
    I have not done anything to it besides cleaning up some rust spots and oiling it.

    Yeah; that was basically the problem I was having.

    Default knife bid

    If you still have the knife blade, I'll bid $20.00 for it.
