hi dave
just thought you might be interested in my additions from
downunder knives real beautys too two for the price of one so to speak
a real good pair of throwers (not that these will ever get thrown(no bloody way)
up to the usuall high downunder standard sharp as s++t too dual
heat treated and the usuall mirror polish very nice indeed
bought a very nice koto katana the koto dragon
katana on page 7 in the hand forged section absolutely spanking more than worth the asking
price well better start saving the pennies again eh :D

Very Tasty Mick! :mrgreen:
I've been trying to get on to the Downunder Knives Official web site, but for some reason it seems unreachable?
Have you heard anything about them, (please excuse the unintentional pun), going under?
B.T.W. how strong is the Outback Bowie, blade, tang, etc,
Cheers! :D

Whilst on the subject of the Down Under range, is anyone getting the DU Toothpick that Loz recently put up on BUK site?

I dont own a single knife (apart from my everyday spyderco), this would be my first - mainly because i know nothing about them, but after seeing this thread bigging up the Down Under range & loving the look of the Toothpick i find myself terribly tempted to grab one!!!
Semper cogitatio.
