Custom Compact Scout made by Ben Tendick (one of the Trad Gang Knife forum regulars)

Bought the knife in July 2014 and it has seen blood!

Please bid high as this is an originally $450+ knife. And those of you who are familiar with Ben's work know the quality he puts in, in materials, time, and craftsmanship.

The knife was reworked on the bottom edge where I drop it on a concrete floor, and smoothed out the small chip in the scale. It now has a Johnson paste wax finish to it and I maintain it through the year.

A different finish can be applied. I'll cover the shipping IF the winner surpasses the $300 mark [readit] [saywhat]

Remember its for the kids and bid high!

Here's the link when I first posted on the knife forum.

[Eek!] [readit] As the Supreme Leader and Captain of the F.R.O.G Team I know the rigors of war this battle tested blade has been through.

And the mere $100 bid on it at this point has definitely offended the service of this tool engineered to exacting qualities to withstand the onslaught of the Vietfrogs.

So please honor the craftmans of this great blade and remember it is for the kids or else face the wrath of the F.R.O.G Team! [scared]

Well, A little better [saywhat]

But it is for the kids and such a blade as this that has seen mortal combat should be highly regarded and desired!

As Captain of the Team I have seen the effects this blade has on other mere men when I have it strapped on my calf tucked in my boot.

Theres an awe struckness about them as they know it take a real man to carry such a knife [goldtooth]

So continuing bidding as this is a worthy goal we have chosen to endeavor into.

Do I hear another 25, how about a 25,25,25 how about 35,40, 45,I see a 45, 50,55........

It's hard trying to write like an auctioneer 😳

But you get the idea, now how about another 50,55,60.....

The knive is great, but the idea of knowing your providing for the life of a child is priceless.

I have 6 grandchildren and another on the way and can't imagine life without them if some tragedy should befall them by fate.

I'm not there, but others are so let do what we can together to help the ones we can.

Times a ticking.......

Don't be the guy/gal that thinks to make a last second bid and find out you run out of time....
