    I´m exited! :D
    Today Nick told me, that my new blade is ready to rock! :thumbup:
    He made me a badass Raptor in O1-steel and now he works at the sheath!
    On monday he will send it and I can´t wait, to get it in my hands!

    Enjoy the first pic, guys!

    Hahaha, I thought the same!
    But after looking again I noticed, that is a reflection on the blade! (maybe a wooden wall in the background)
    I call it the new wood damascus! :)

    Ah! Yeah, that makes sense, haha. I'm not used to seeing reflections on Nick's blades with their hand rubbed finishes. It threw me for a bit, especially since his normal hamon is visible there. New wood damascus indeed :D

    Yesterday I was in the woods to have some fun!

    Made a fire and just had a good time!

    The Raptor did a good job and it´s definitely a great working tool for the camp! :thumbup:

    Thats a nice knife Peter, I'd like to get a scout one day myself. I have'nt seen Nick around here much though lately.
    Enjoy that raptor, it looks like one well built blade/chopper.

    Thanks very much, Doug!

    Yeah, you can´t go wrong with a Scout. It´s a great knife at all!

    The Raptor works very well as a campknife for every cutting task.
    But if the logs are bigger, you better do batoning than chopping.
    For chopping the knife has to be more heavy! ;)

    Yeah, those two were my last purchases and they needed to be used!
    And I´m happy with both cool blades! :)
