    Hi Everyone,

    A bit of an update. Roy received the knife today and it is a legitimate 30946 1st-pattern F-S. He has offered to consign it for me and I accepted. He estimates the value at $1,400 and with his 20% fee, that brings my takeaway to $1,120. You can actually see that he has added a blue update banner to his "For Sale" page reading: "Update: Newly discovered 30946 First Pattern F-S Due In Very Soon..!"

    I'm splitting the funds with the gentleman who gave me the tools and I'm going to make a donation to this forum for all your help.

    Thanks!

    Crap, I was planning on trying to buy it. Seems I'm always late to the party.

    Too bad Greg, it would have fit nicely into your wonderful collection of combat knives.
    But I guess there are still 460 left to find!
