    Default Not sure about this.

    I been watching this on it's second go around. It looks older than dirt and I am kinda wanting it. The picture is all the info I could get out of the seller. Never got an answer back from question I sent.He can't read the name on the tang is the only thing I got to go on and this pic.

    The scary part is the scales. They look home made and not that great. Is that a stub tail ? Full wedge ? I am not trusting my eyes on this one. I thought somebody would recognize the first part of the mark.
    Good judgment comes from experience, and experience....well that comes from poor judgment.

    Either true wedge or the spine has been ground down to nothing. Definitely some sloppy homemede scales, they look huge! If a seller doesn't answer my questions I figure one of two things: hiding something, avoiding making the item known to not be worth buying, or someone I wouldn't want to do business with in the first place. I may be paranoid, but if they wont answer questions or post better pics, there is a reason behind it. Tread litely on this one I think.

    Mastering implies there is nothing more for you to learn of something... I prefer proficient enough to not totally screw it up.
