    Perusing the mags at my local Borders I ran across this small pic. Pretty straightforward design as I would expect from him. Looks like a beefed up mora.

    Look nice. You are right, I wouldn't expect anything but a straight forward, simple, and practical design from him.

    I like that. Did it mention specs?

    Unfortunately not. That quick blurb and small pic was all that was listed. I assume it will be a lot thinner than most of the TOPS knives, the scales appear to be natural micarta, but they look more orange in the pic.

    It looks good, but I want to know how thick it will be first.

    When I read the title I said to myself, "please dont be coated, please dont be coated..." Im impressed. First Tops knife Ive liked besides Joes Shango. Id love to see specs....

    Interesting. The overall shape looks good. I like that the scales are removable. It would be easy enough to replace with some nice stabilized wood scales. No blade coating is always a plus. I just hope the blade isn't too thin. 1/8" or 5/32" would be my preference. If this comes with a halfway decent sheath and the specs are right, I'll be all over it.

    It is unusual to see the scales being held on with phillips head screws. Makers usually shy away from those because they are too "usual" and like to stay with the hex head screws. But being from Cody, it makes sense to use screws that can be removed without any special equipment other than a screw driver

    I cruised back through the E2E Shot Show coverage with Joe, and BOOM! right there at 2:30 he shows it. Looks like a great thickness, hope it comes out like that. I'm pretty sure it's the same knife anyway. Come on Joe, tell, tell! ;)

    Edit: Dang, how do you embed youtube again? Well, it's there anyway. And the Shango-zilla still looks great too.

    I like it even more, now! Plus, I kinda like the Tracker Necker.

    Not surprising to see the Mora influence, as it's the knife he carries.

    This does look interesting though.

    I've been a fan of Cody's for a long time so I would probably pick one up if the price is right. Though I still haven't quite warmed up to scandi's :eek:

    Bear Claw, thanks for embedding that. How do you do that again? :confused:

    Looks nice. It indeed resembles a Mora. It looks like there is some jimping on it.

    When your watching a youtube video, click on the "share" button, and it will give you the URL for that video, which in this case was "http://youtu.be/8kdKFF-G_5M" take that last part "8kdKFF-G_5M" and place it between:

    [you tube] and [/you tube].

    (Leave out the space between you and tube, In both of them, I had to put that in there to get the code to show up.) :)
