man, I am sitting here eating some homemade strawberry ice cream and I think the only things that could top it is the handle on that knife. Eddie that is real nice! Hope all is well with you and the missus!

Smitty! We are well! Beautiful day in SC and I'm not going in the shop today. Just piddlin' and readin' the paper, scopin' out the new forums.

The inspiration for this camp knife came from a customer in the UK that gave me a design similar to this, but much smaller for archaelogical digs. I just thought with the right spine and grind, and a little bigger, it would make a great all-around camp knife.

The handle material I got at The Blade in Atlanta.

Thanks for the look!

Just wanted y'all to know that Bubba loved his blade and I'll be closing this out this weekend. I'll make a picture gallery like some of the others we've seen so that we can keep a record of what all we sold out of THE Dog.
