    The last I heard was that the handles had broken off from throwing it, and it had some chunks out of the edge from attempting to baton it through a 1/2" diameter lag bolt. I told outdoorsfan to post pics, but nothing yet.

    Yup - It is still out there being abused - I see Sean has posted some pictures today -

    No worries - the viKtim has still not succumbed to any violence - it shows battle scars, but has not been broken.

    Scales are just window dressing, and even they withstood way more abuse that expected, and John and I were discussing this; He did not attach the scales in the same way he would for a production knife so customers can reasonably expect that their knives would hold up even better than the viKtim in terms of the scales.

    I am very impressed (but not really surprised) at how well Mr. K's 01 steel holds up, and I am anxious to do a post-mortem on him when he arrives back at the compound in the cornfield.

    best

    Hehheh,hehheh,he said orgy hehheh.
    Sorry,couldn't help myself.........lol.

    I'd say the victim held up way beyond expected & I look forward to getting mine.
    I'm surprised the scales didn't split,crack & fall off a long time ago with all the abuse they took.
    Thats what I would call last resort abuse & now we all know for sure just what a JK built knife can withstand.
    Thanks to all the testers that tried,but failed to break the sprit of the ViKtim!He's one tough son of a gun.
