No knife is worth a damn against a stone counter top. That's why we have cutting boards and butcher blocks. And in the history of knives, stainless is still a fairly new thing. Nothing wrong with a good carbon steel blade.
In my opinion the Rodent Trail is a perfect hunting knife, but I would rather have the Rodent Solution as an EDC. I missed the boat on the Solution and never have managed to score one for myself. My buddy has one that I covet bit he wont turn it loose. Lol!
After my last couple blades with black canvas that had a light and dark layered look to them I was really missing the old stuff that had an almost OD greed hue to it, but I am loving how evenly dark this last batch is.
UPS man dropped off a box of two comp and black canvas. One for me and one for one of my buddies. This may very well be the most comfortable handle of any Busse/Kin that I have owned. Lovin' it! Now to complete the Ratmandu saga we need a thin slicey version in elmax with extra thick handle...
