1) click on the image to go to the gallery page and take a look at the specs. of the piece.

2) PM me a bid of what you would be willing to pay for the piece.(shipping extra)
There is a reserve on this piece, don't worry about bidding low.
Be sure to say what piece you are bidding on.
5% of the price goes to myArmoury.

The bidding will end Friday 11-20-2009 at Noon (PST) after which I will contact the winner
and anounce the final price and the winner (unless they want to remain anonymous).

Let me know if you have any questions about the piece or how the auction works.

Good luck,

Ben

P.S. this is one of my favorite pieces that I have crafted.

It's not that I would trade my lot
For any other man's,
Nor that I will be ashamed
Of my work torn hands-

For I have chosen the path I tread
Knowing it would be steep,
And I will take the joys thereof
And the consequences reap.

Any chance I could get you to add messer to that list?

PS: I have an aversion to knives without some sort of guard or choil to provide some protection against slipping index fingers. However, that is a really nice piece of work!

PPS: make what you want. I won't be in the market for a while.

I can't believe I forgot messers Eek!
I'm not sure how to edit the poll, so I guess messers will have to go in the other catagory *sigh*

Good luck on the auction.

A messer is a knife. That's the translation. So "knife" works.

Too true messers, seaxs, knives, and daggers can all be considered the sub categories of knives.
Not being much of a German speaker I tend to think of messers in terms of the gross, kreigs, and lang variety.

To be clear of what I meant, the translation of the German word messer is "knife". I think a lot of us would love to see your take on a grossemesser one of these days!

I was thinking grosse messer. Dare I ask for a kriegsmesser? I suppose I should have said "hauswehr or bigger"

I haven't had much interest in this piece, so if I'm thinking of closing the auction early, at noon this friday.

If anyone is interested in having the auction run the full week let me know (and bid).

Good Luck

Ben:I cant believe it!

To all and everyone: please take another look at this piece and check the gallery page! I thing that its otstanding work. Consider having piece from Bens hands, i think its value would only be higher, as Ben is very talented and promising craftsman.

You can support him in beginings of his carreer, not to mention having rael beautiful sax for reasonable price.
I do not collect knives, as i make them, This particular knife inspired me a lot in my work, so believe me, I really think its great.

I think this is a wonderful knife. Too bad I can't offer you a quarter of what it's worth.

The winner wished to remain anonymous, the final price was $575

Thanks to all who bid.

This will most likely be the last Pick your Price for a while. Please visit my website for items I have for sale (you are always free to make an offer on one of them, the worst I can say is "no".) Happy

Thanks again,
Ben
