    I've always been a Kershaw nut. Just received these 2:
    Full disclosure- these are the seller's pictures.

    1993-2 Gentleman's Knife
    [​IMG]
    Blade Length: 3 1/8inches (7.9cm)
    Closed Length: 4 1/4inches (10.8cm)
    Blade Steel: VG-10 stainless-steel
    Handle Material: Black Linen Micarta
    Weight: 3.1oz


    Wild Turkey "Damascus"
    [​IMG]
    Blade Length: 3 1/8"
    Blade Material: 16 layer polished VG-1 clad Damascus steel
    Handle Material: Black pakka wood
    Closed Length: 3 7/8"
    Overall: 8"

    Only 250 of these were made

    I also experienced a "first" for me today. I injured myself a bit on the 1993-2. Nope, not a cut. Its 10 degrees here. I grabbed the package from the mailbox, opened it, unboxed the knife...and stuck my finger tip to the frozen blade! I know I should have just let it warm up, but my reaction was to jerk my finger away. Nice little bit of finger pad stayed behind!

    Well, I certainly hope you cleaned all the blood & skin off the blade when you got unstuck!
    Oh, never mind.

    I meant to say, I hope you are O.K.! :D

    Very nice knives BTW!!

    I really like the first one. It almost reminds me of a very sleek version of a Buck 500.
