    Freakin sweet! The whole thing is perfect. The edge looks really nice and the handles really finish it off well.

    Wow I must be really tired or past that point . . . . for some strange reason, I keep seeing Johnny Depp with that style knife in those pirate movies he made . . . but I don't think they had liners back in the day . .
    Nice design Chris, & Essublime, do not make any blood bank withdrawls with this one, ok ???
    Be safe.

    Even better in the sunlight. Excellent Chris!!! And the only bank withdrawls I need to make are from the real bank to fund my KFU addiction...but I love them all and am never disappointed.

    Chris,
    I have 5 of Bill's knives's so far! One, I carry and use daily even though she is also a looker. Another is used for skinning. I have watched you progress your ability as a craftsmen and I must say that my first KFU will need to be the Roach Belly! That is just one fine looking tool any way you slice it!!....I know, bad....pun was intended! Keep up the good work and I am sure many will be looking forward to getting their hands on one.

    Thanks guys. Bill has taught me ALOT and continues to offer advice if I get stuck with something. I really like this one too. After I get freed up a bit Im going to finish the camp knives and do a run of these bad boys.
