Auction #24 for Freethoughtblogs Legal Debts

This is to help defray FTB’s legal debts from Richard Carrier’s defamation lawsuit. Details and rules are below:


Bidding starts at: $25

You can bid in the comments, or bid by emailing me [link]; it may take a while for an email bid to register because I check my email only once or twice a day.

Whoever bids the most wins. The final price is (winner decides) between $1 more than the second highest bidder, and what they bid. So, if someone bids $50 and you bid $100 and that’s the final bid, you pay whatever you want between $51 and $100. Please do not “auction snipe” with last-minute bids. This is more like a silent auction than Ebay. Pay Here: [paypal]

Auction Closed at $251 to $325. Thank you all for bidding!

Veggie Lightning:

Veggie lightning will also cut meat. In fact, it cut a chunk of Marcus-meat while I was sharpening it.

Handle is cocobolo with a wenge bolster. Blade is low layer-count 1095 and 15N20 pattern-weld. Currently it’s carrying a pretty extreme etch. The blade is differentially tempered; there is a dark region you can see by the tang which is pearlite steel; the rest of the blade is martensite/austenite. Unlike my usual work, this is a fairly thin blade (less than 1/8″ at the handle) the whole length, so it slices very very well.

    Let’s dance! $250!

    It’s more than I wanted to spend, but it’s a cool knife, and FtB has a lot of BS legal debts. It won’t take much to get me to drop out. Anyone want to try?
