Hi Guys,

Here is a Dixon Fighter I have recently finished, a personal favorite of Loveless...

ATS 34 with Desert Ironwood, red fiber liners and 303 Stainless guard + interscrews. The knife is truly well designed with great balance and has a great feel to it(even before I started grinding I couldn't keep my hands off of it)! Give your honest opinion!

Is it just me, or is Dixon Fighter Nr.2 thread missing?

Mark you are correct. Axel may be able to do something for us to recover it but otherwise it may be gone forever........

Neill, I saw it on BF, Steven Garson gave you an awesome write up, he is very critical, and he knows his oats, congrats on that positive critique.

and to top it off, he got you a Coop photo shot, Coop had very positive words to say also, "crisp" I believe it was.

Well done Neill

Thanks Neill, good to see this beauty back on SABlade.

What a stunner!

Wow Neill, Mr Coop! You must be so happy. The man really knows how to capture talent in the right way.

Glad that Steven is a happy customer, he has quite a collection, and generally very critical, he knows his knives.

Keep up the great work.
