    That's all you had to say.... sweet......

    What sends me over the edge is I could have made it out this time, turns out I didn't do jack....!!!!!!!!!!!! Baseball was canceled Friday do to rain and I never even thought about it.. and I was freed up with time since Wednesday

    while looking at the pictures of you guys kicking it in what appears to be a super laid back spot is really kewl, I just can't get over how jealous I am right now....

    btw, I think Sam should have won 1st place just for wearing such an awesome shirt !!!

    Who said there wasn't? Interesting thought paradigm ya'll have going on. Derek hasn't posted his pics yet, nor Tradewater. That guy Sam is supposed to be sending me pics too.

    Coming soon.

    That's what I'm hoping. Ain't waiting 'till "next year". Maybe a couple, three by then.
    Plus other stuff. We're camping / hiking "Peaks of Otter" next. (We live at the foothills) State park at the top. Should be cool. Though my wife wasn't to keen when she saw the
    warning signs for bears and mountian lions


    We have 35 acres here in VA. Stream running through. Tons of game on the property (deer, turkey, rabbit, etc.) could be.

    I will definitely make it if there's a meet up here in VA! Have fun at Peaks of Otter, I've been there a number of times, beautiful scenery! I did see a bear last time I was there.

    Alright, this first pic shows the Camp Tweener next to the original three tweener proto's. The camp tweener is going to have the blade come down a little more to meet the end of the rounded part at the top of the handle, and the grind will being going up about an additional quarter of an inch. This is going to be one of the best selling knives in BK&T history, it is almost perfect, for darn near everything. Thickness is .168" I believe. They rounded off the grip a little, beefed up the lanyard hole, and just generally made it nicer than the first ones. Thankfully it will be flat ground, although Uncle E has blanks for a couple of hollow ground ones.



    In the next two pics you get pure camp tweener goodness, but if you look at the little knife, that is the one got Ethan inspired to make a neck knife. So that thing is pretty much the inspiration behind the 11.





    Next two are mini magnum camp and the clip point tweener. These things are awesome, and I didn't think I would like either. I will be getting some of those too when they come out.





    And finally, the Brute is back, along with the Mach Ax. This being my first time to see a Brute up close, I was very, very surprised at how small it was. The Mach Ax is probably the "snappiest" thing I have ever chopped with. When you swing it just pops forward, and is very comfortable.

    I want the clip point in my hunting pack, the mini Mag in my kayak kit, and the drop point on my hip. Now.

    Oh man, Derek, you gotta put that knife in the cabinet and seal it behind bulletproof glass. Sharpened by the boss himself? That's a damn relic!







    J/K, use that bastard.

    She got used to split the willow for the bow drill sets. Afterwards was still shaving sharp. Methinks I need to get myself one of these belt sanders people are going on about...

    They haven't seen the spring-loaded projectile yet.
