Looks good myke, may have o add that to the wish list, protourist had just about convinced me already , I hate getting the back of my head slapped anway,
Always carry a knife!
No ifs,ands or buts about it!
If you don't,you get Gibbs'd!
Anyhoo,I got my JK Rule #9 (and a lanyard made by & donated for free by KYEnglish) & the LRK+ at work yesterday.
Thank you John & Peter!
For those that don't know,the Rule #9 was designed by Proturist,(proud supporter of JK Knives #7,Mack)
To be honest,when I first saw it I wasn't too impressed,but the more pics I saw of it(thanks Mack) & thought about it,the more it grew on me.
I had to get one in hand to see for myself whether or not I'd like it,so I placed my order for July.
And all I have to say is....right on Mack!
The handle is very comfy in hand with different grips & the pointy,almost dagger like blade will do just about anything you'd want a knife to do.
It's got a bit more belly than drop in the spine and I can see using it to clean big or small game,fish and a number of camp duties.
I can also see it as a defensive tool or emergency survival tool.
It's got the exposed tang that can be used as a defensive impact tool(for when you don't want to dirty up the blade on some sob that really needs it)or a scraper for making bowls and/or spoons+tinder & for pounding on if needed and the nice point for drilling/penetrating.
Overall,it's a great design well made by John.
Here it is with a couple of other great JK models.
The friction folder I edc at work & gets used daily & the Satin LRK will be getting scales.(still undetermined)
I carry a Kershaw Schallot & Vic.Rambler in my pants pocket so the R9 will be carried in my edc pack for now on & will get used in camp as much as possible when I can get out there.(can't wait to dirty it up)
Check out them curves..woohoo baby.
Get your's on order now,you won't be sorry.

That's a beauty! Like the red spacers.

Wow, what a thread to wake up to. That turned out beautifully.
At first glance it looks to simple to be special. Once you've had it in your hand though, it's functionality slaps you in the head. It really is a special knife.
I hope you enjoy it. John made a simple design into a functioning work of art.

Great lookin' knife. Black micarta with red liners is my default handle combo.

The Rule #9 is one of those models that I frequently lust after. If it is possible for a knife to be sexy, the Rule #9 is.
Add it to my 2013 list of things I need.

I have always loved Mack's design for the RN9 - it is really a beautiful knife - just good lines.
I can't wait to see one in snakewood. It'll come - but I had to order a Galley Wag first , and we'll be seeing a viKtim in snakewood soon as well - so I have to cogitate a bit myself before I order another blade.
