    ^ Thanks. I've been playing around with google picasaweb, I'm figuring out if I like it better than photobucket (hate it since they updated).

    Here's the bowie. Fittings are from a wrought iron wagon wheel rim.

    Here is my current outdoor fixed/folder combo - A Swamp Rat Knife Works Ratmandu and a Benchmade Mini Bone Collector. I keep the Benchmade clipped inside my pocket for small tasks, and the Ratmandu in a custom kydex drop-leg sheath I made, for the heavier tasks.

    You're right, just compared the markings.

    This thing is just amazing. 1/4 inch thick, weighs seriously 5 pounds. He paid 6 bucks a piece and got 4, so a few of us that are close have the same steel. It was a really nice gift, I can't wait to start using it. We are going camping in 3 weeks, seems like an eternity!

    Svord Von Tempsky. In L6 tool steel. Made in New Zealand. If you like traditional Bowies, this one is worth serious consideration IMHO.

    This week's Benchmade purchase, low quality cell phone pictures, I'll get some better ones eventually.

    [​IMG]

    I really like the Torrent as an EDC, been carrying various Ken Onion designed CRKT and Kershaws, the Kershaws have turned to junk as of late, love the shape and size of my CRKT Ripple, but the blade steel leaves something to be desired in terms of durability. I do wish it were 15% smaller overall, and an Axis lock would be amazing. However, it's a great looking knife, comfortable in my hand, the assist works well and even before stropping it's razor sharp.

    The kitchen knives are perfect IMHO. Would not change a thing, except for buying another set so I don't have to use the same one for meat and veggies, less washing in between. The 8" chef knife is almost twice as thick at the spine as anything else I've used, gives it good weight like a 12" knife, but without being too big like a 12" knife is. It's on part in every way except style with my dad's Kramer Shun 8" chef's knife. The utility knife is a different shape than I'm used to, but a very useful little knife while preparing meat. I wish they made a few more styles of blades, as I'm very particular about all my tools matching, and aside from a second set of these, I need a fillet knife, cleaver, and bread knife to handle all my kitchen tasks.

    Gratuitous pictures of a potato so thin I can read through it.

    This is a Ruff & Tuff Randall knife. It's a non-catalog model called a "Sergeant's" Model.

    All of the Randall knives I have ever seen were beautiful works of art. Thank you all.
