    Multi bar seax

    Takes off Mod cap upon entering thread JIBlohm I'm not a knife maker , but did some research & came up with these . 3 minutes chasing the rabbit down the " google " hole I I came up with this . The curve on your blade looks nothing like the III/II one in this chart if that's what you where going for . To me as a " non knife maker " this is a " Bowie " ( my opinion ) Put's Mod cap back on Please explain ?????????????? Then approx. 9 hour later No answer to the question Then you come up with this statement . Was it you were unfairly being picked in by Steve (remembering templehound stated the same thing 9 hour earlier ) or were you singling out Steve for some other reason ? I despise personal attacks which I hope this wasn't Personal attacks on members & / or staff will not be tolerated on IFI .
