I bought this beautiful Charlie Bell custom folder from Vincent at VCM Custom Knives ( https://www.vcmcustomknives.com/ ) a couple weeks ago. This knife design is known as a "Zulu Spear" due to the shape of the blade resembling the point of a Zulu warrior's spear. The blade has a spine shaped like a Wharncliffe, with a curved belly instead of the Wharncliffe's straight cutting edge. It is 3-3/4" L closed. It features CPM-154 steel, very distinctive looking cross-cut brown micarta covers, and yellow liners. Fit and finish is impeccable, and it's shaving sharp.

Pictures are sooooo large that it takes away from what I'm trying to view. Confused  We should probably introduce the megapixel limit back into posting pics.

Yeah, I know. I donโ€™t know how to make images stay within the confines of the page width. I wish the forum would adjust photos to fit the page regardless of size. Interestingly, these photos are visible in their entirety without having to scroll when viewed on a cell phone.

They look awesome on a mobile device, going to have to check Billyโ€™s holster next. I use a photo editor to reduce the size do folks can view my pics but agree it would be nice if the forum software would do it automatically.

It used to auto adjust for screen width in the past. What puzzles me is when I adjust photos to a certain size, it sometimes fits the screen, sometimes not.

When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.
