Don’t be afraid to wait if what YOU like just doesn’t “hit the spot”, there are some AWSOME items along with the standards depends on you. But make sure you are happy. 😉

If I knew exactly what I wanted I’d still wager a shot at giving Kelsie Girl a call to make my “wished for” known, specially if one of the usuals would be going up on the board, maybe you could get’er to hold that one out and shoot you a message....might be asking a bit from her as she IS covered up over there and it’s always a bit “hectic”. She’s always covered up sounding with shop details snd keeping track of it all. 🤙. It’s always great to talk to her. Maybe not doable,... but..😎

Had a request snd just getting it done...here’s that 14K Gold Plated Cardiac Spike in the wild.

Was missing that item (size of spike) so this was a cool way to get it and have a “thing” extra just to have it, so what the heck go 14K...REALLY like those Damascus Spikes though. Price-wise the standard Cardiacs go $160, don’t remember the exact Damascus price but it’s more obviously, the 14K goes $275. When I saw them the first (and ONLY time so far) I knew I wanted one so I called and let Kelsie know. It took awhile to get...np. It finally was gotten too and so far have seen no other 14K’s offered since it’s first appearance. Saw those Torso Spikes done recently, will probably try for one sometime in the future, now THAT’s a spike 👀.... hand spear!

Still some up... some nice ones, too.

If you want one... now's your chance!

Some amazing 'hawks tonite... but none of them were for me. So didn't snag one. Looking for a viking blade with a simple handle. These were art. I could have snagged all three. But they didn't speak to 'me.' So someone else got them.

Lots of stuff...SPECIALS, standards, special Bleeding Hearts. Bowie’s, if I had money hanging (and it would surely be money) and a really nice one came by I’d be trying for it as I know a ton of other well doers would be. And if it happened I got it, it would be a pure fortunate lucky thing. 🤙 And like he said when it speaks to you you better go now. That’s how this works with a lot of it.

Thanks for the help guys. I’m a proud owner of a disaster jr!!!!
You have done me proud, Grasshopper! Enjoy and treasure it.

Just don't sell it tomorrow on eBay like a douchebag!

Just kidding... I know you wouldn't do that. SH folks are above that sort of thing!

Congrats!

I’ve posted it before but since it’s your first (works about the same as other firsts) it’s special. Mine is this Gulo-Gulo that was my first purchase after finding out about them here on this thread. EDC every minute except at work in the plant (would be fine but sling remote control crane hoist boxes all day along with the flashlight and tape measure on my belt already.

Bought a fair few now and STILL get excited seeing nice stuff from him, and I’ll def get a few more in time. 🤙 Congratulations on your’s. And first time out 😎.

With a $150 upcharge. Do you think these people are just going for a one time scalping boon? Or they repeatedly scarf up knives and supplement their monthly income with 4 x $100 eBay profits every month? Does it not get kind of suspicious at HFB HQ when one person buys 4 blades a month for 2 or 3 months?
Hey man just give them a call or email and let them know you're retired SOF and they will take care of you like they do for all the local ones. Im more of Winkler fan but I do have a first run Karmabito he made for me that I do treasure and recently touched up by them from years of carry. They are a really good company.

Thanks. Did manage to get my 1st HFB last night. Was able to get a black Disaster Jr. Tried to snag a custom Crow Jr, but when I checked out it was gone. The Disaster Jr will be a nice addition to my knife collection.

5:10 MST. Ten or more custom blades just dropped, all sold out in minutes. Some folks seem to have advance notice? I had a Windowmaker in my cart, went to PP and it said "Sold Out".
Have two tabs open one logged into PP and the other into HFB and logged in to your account.
That might make your check out quicker.

I looked at the breaching tool thingie.. and said “that is cool....”. And left it for someone who wants it.

I was there, but nothing caught my eye. Patiently waiting on our group custom and will likely buy a replacement Viking hawk if one comes up... if not I’ll order custom in spring.

wants are not needs... it is interesting to watch, tho. And then see guys posting pictures of a drawer with 100 customs in it... their collection.

good things come to those who wait...

I started looking at HFB about a month ago. Next thing I know I am contemplating getting one. And finding one itself turns into a hunt. Finally saw one surfaced on the site. Disaster Jr. Blade made it's first trip into the swamp this week end. The draw for me to keep circling back around to the web site is reoccurring more & more. I see a pattern here.20201121_080626.jpg

That deer picked a lousy place to die... congrats on a nice fork!!! And a wicked nice knife with which to clean it. When it dries out.
