    Default Found in the wild- 1911 Gillette and an 8/8 John Shaw FBU

    Found a couple of juicy nuggets over the weekend. The most notable nugget being a nice little 8/8 John Shaw FBU. Aside from some honewear and crusty bits, it's a sweet chunk of Sheffield steel. Scales are in pretty dang good shape too.
