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

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!!!
