Looking for a Snakewood Medici FOUND

Postby JimBrown257 » Wed Jan 10, 2018 4:09 am

I'm looking for a Snakewood Medici just like this one. It's the kind with the Rostfrei stamp, brass liners and no nail-nick. There is a version with steel liners and an AKC stamp, which is not the one I am looking for.

If you have one that you'd consider selling or trading, send me a pm. Thanks!

I did a pimped up one for a friend a couple of years ago. Pin (pique) work on the snakewood, probably some filework, maybe engraving-don't remember.
Want me to see if he still has it?

Yeah, I might like to see that, thanks. And by any chance did you put actual NS guards on it?

That's probably the first thing I would do on one of these. It's such a cool looking knife but those SS guards really are an unfortunate design choice.

Anyways, just pass my contact on. Thanks!

I have one that's about 18 years old with rosewood. It's a fixer-upper. Has nail nick and brass liners.

Rick was one of the first sellers I dealt with when I first go bitten by the bug. All of my interactions with him have always been top notch.

Alright, I am all set; I got that one on SD.

Though, if someone has one of the light or dark horn ones, I might still be interested in one of those.
