    It seemed like a fun project elsewhere, so why not here?

    I'll start with the knife that brought most of us to Rick:

    XM-18 PROTO

    A massive thank you to Rick, Mike, Rob and Pete for making the impossible possible. :

    I didn't even know this existed but it does and because of the friends of mine listed above, it is now mine. May I present to you THE XM-18 PROTO! G10 scale, two tone spanto blade, blasted lock side, oh and of course PROTO stamped on the blade!

    Thanks to Mike K. I was able to get the only one of the 3 camp knives Rick made that is flat ground. (P.S. That flat ground camp knife is the one used in the American Handgunner magazine.) Pete is holding out on me!

    OK, I know what you're thinking...it doesn't look that big. Well, here's a few pictures with some other Hinderers:
