The D is maybe for Daniel but the K and the C...? <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_scratch.png" alt="scratch" longdesc="33"><br>Also I have another question, do you often shoot with them and do you ever got a fork hit <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_pale.gif" alt="pale" longdesc="26"> ?<br>Well done, mate.<br>Sincerely, Courier

    Beautiful!!!! The blasted finish really sets it off!!! Handles are awesome too! <br>Could make the second out of steel and sharpen it to make it a skull chopper!
