    That must have been a bit of a surprise to have the police turn up unannounced at your door ! It's puzzling that he came back asking for details of the knife - unless of course he'd lost the info from UKBF himself ? It's easy to…

    My Stainthorp CA knife is 14C28N and I'm very impressed with it. As Platinum says you can get it super sharp and it keeps it's edge really well but unlike some so called "super" steels it is easy to maintain in the field which is ideal for a user.

    Pictures directly from Mr Ruple. One of the best Lannys he's ever made (bold statement) and a one off from Bill so far, the only ever with carbon and double bolster with trimmings.
