    A Dagger Grind, or Double-edged knife is my favorite design, so my decision is an easy one;)

    Here's a screenshot of Dan and James Helm holding each others blades at BLADE 2019. I believe James is holding a K18. ( really hoping I'm not wrong!) If you've never had the pleasure of holding one of Jame's Carcass Splitters you don't know what your missing. I'm fortunate to have one of both these gentlemans blades.

    Really hoping I can get on line at work tomorrow!!!

    And I am *so* conflicted over this. I have absolutely no possible need for something like this. It will do nothing but be drooled over and take up room in my safe. And yet I want one because it is so freakin' cool.

    How could you not go with leather for a KOD Piece? Kydex would just be... weird.

    (ok - that's the one and only time I'm going to play on the obvious joke)

    Obtaining a properly fitting kydex KOD piece is an exquisitely uncomfortable process

    I'm cocked, locked and loaded... The Q is as to whether I should go for 1 or for 2 since there is no option other than having an unsharpened top edge, which to me, defeats the objective of the design. My bicameral mind has kicked in overdrive as so:

    Do I tie up another extra $1200 for the next 6-8 months or so to save myself from fooling around with buying extra toys and goodies for this period of time or not? In one way, this would not be a bad thing to stop the proverbial never ending chase of an addict and on the other hand it can act as an antidote for an addict who wants to go cold turkey on chasing, welp for a little bit anyway! Hmm?!
