I posted how I had placed an order with Nick awhile back:
Got the knife last week. Its a heavy duty variant of the Sierra Scout built to my specs. I dub the H.O.S.S. (Heavy Ordnance Sierra Scout). I was going to call it the Burley, Overbuilt Sierra Scout, but my ego doesn't go quite that far.
- 7 x .25 inch differentially heat treated 01 blade,
- Scuplted, ultra comfortable blue/black G10 handle scales with red liners,
- Trade mark custom fitted leather sheath with fire steel loop.
See the photos...my words alone wouldn't do it justice. Fit and finish are about as perfect as I think can be done.
I couldn't ask for a finer camp knife. It is, in a word, SUPERB.
Quality is ALWAY worth the wait.
If you like Mr. Allen's work, shoot him an order soon, you'll be EXTREMELY glad you did.
