German Eye Trapper - $45 trade value

I also have a German Eye Trapper that's 4 1/8" closed, with stag scales and 1095 blades. It's been well used, and so the blades have a healthy patina, but it's in good shape overall. Here's some things that I'd be interested in trading for:

AG Russell 3" Titanium Lockback
Buck Vantage Pro
Buck Vantage Avid
Case CV Slimline Trapper
Anything that isn't unnamed/440 (except 440C) stainless, and anything that isn't overly tactical

EKA Swede 88 - $20 trade value

I also have a used EKA Swede 88. The pivot shows wear from adjustment, but overall the handle is in great shape. The blade is in OK condition, with light scratches from use and a small chip/nick/flatspot near the tip that you don't notice in use, only when looking at the edge in the right light at the right angle, and equates to a small, sharpened divot at this point. It's too insignificant to capture in pictures. As far as trades:

Anything that doesn't have unnamed/440 (except for 440C) stainless and anything that isn't overly tactical.

If you are going to offer slipjoints, I prefer single blade. I'd be willing to trade both knives for one more expensive knife, such as the following:

Spyderco Etched Dragonfly
KaBar Dozier 4059 Folding Hunter
Various GECs or other slipjoints

Mcusta MCU33D - $130 trade value

I have an Mcusta Take MCU33D that I'd like to put up for trade. It's basically NIB, except for some sharpening. The sharpening definitely mproved the edge over the factory sharpness, and by a noticeable margin. I used a sharpmaker at the 30 degree setting to do this. Except for that, the knife is absolutely perfect. It's been used to cut a tomato, and hasn't been carried. Also comes with the woven pouch thing, and of course the box. Here are some knives I'm looking to trade for:

Various Mcustas (even other Takes, minus the damascus scales)
Seki-Cut Folding Katana (the metal handles and damascus blades are preferred)
AG Russell 4" Folding Lockback
Case Slimlock
Other knives that are, at least, not overly tactical.

I also have a custom large fixed blade for trade. (made by me) with carbon steel, ebony handles and blue saphire inlays if you're interested. Serrations can be ground away turning it into a recurve if you like. And I'm also willing to polish away the stripes or add more etching if you prefer that.
