    OK, let me start by saying I have been welding and machining metal for a living for 27 years. Valkman knows how to craft a knife. His grind is beautiful, which believe me is no small feat. There are no gaps between handle and tang, even the rivets have a design in them. Even though the knife design looks simple, it is well thought out. When holding it, my hand glides right into position, ready to work. Even the slight bulge where my pinkie goes is perfect for leverage when skinning. I get the impression that I could cut a car door open, then pull out a splinter with it, very nice balance. The wrist strap is braided leather, very classy.Thank you Valkman, it is an honor to accept this from you! [beer]

    Oh yeah, I don't see any handle cracks!

    That knife was not a second - the first knife I offered was but I wound up giving that to Rooster and gave this one instead. It's a worker for sure with that blade shape, and Cousin jack did a super job on the lanyard.

    Maybe I should ressurect that as a model! :)

    Glad you won Roscoe!

    Edit: I un-stickied this.
