I would like to have see B 8 have wide like FSH . .20 -.22 . I am for thin one. I am traveller. Jerry , bring it, please.
Elf choil and thin blade gets my vote!
Small choil and .22 thick!
I would prefer a 3 inch choil... just to be contrarian.
You never know when you may have to choke up! A lot!!!

Maybe a regulator handle would be cool on the 8. Change it up a bit.
Azwelke.I have been trying to get a hold of you.
Jerry, bring on the B-8!!!
This will be my last post on this thread, Most importantly to bring it back up top and keep the pressure on, and second to BEG/PLEAD/GROVEL for a thicker option... I have a particular stump in the forest that I harvest fatwood from and although I can use my .25" B10, my DOGFATHER at .275 is WAAAAY better/comforting at prying the strips off the tall stump. That's the niche it will fill. THE ultimate indestructible mid length basic woods combat survival camp knife.
As to the weight concerns, my full height grind B10's at .25 are Super light as if they were infused with helium, so I think cutting 2 inches off the length and adding it to the thickness would allow it to balance very similar to the B10 while giving a fuller grip to the handle. I guarantee they'd feel a heck of a lot lighter than the SOD's from the yard.
So I have pleaded my case and with that, I'm off to celebrate and spread some holiday cheer.
Merry Christmas All and please remember those away from home this Christmas and New Years.
Oh and BTW, rest assured this will NOT be MY last post to this thread.
Way to go Will!

Finally found the link:
Here's dericdesmond's photo (IIRC) showing all four "even" numbered Basic prototypes at the Blade 2011 debut. Basic 8 is the left-center knife, between the Basic 10 and Basic 6:
IS THIS KNIFE DA BOMB OR WHAT?
Above is the choiled version. You can see my photoshop attempt to approximate a choilless version in Post 23.
