    I have the same sentiment about the BF 86. If decide to make mine a user, I’ll be doing the same. Nice job!

    Repetitive I know but it’s hard to argue with perfection.

    The barehead does look really nice on this frame!

    Thanks fellas. I'm a big fan of bare head on this pattern. It cuts down the weight a smidge too.

    Can anyone show the Bladeforums knife compared with an 82 Possum Skinner? I would like to see closed length, width, and thickness. Thanks!

    Perfect, thanks Jeff! I think I might have to grab a Possum Skinner now.

    Lighting sucks, but you can get the idea — loving the stag I got! No popcorn, this is baby smooth and oh so sweet in hand. Probably wouldn’t have been my first choice but this is the only one I saw listed for non-markup prices and there are zero regrets. You can see a palm swell that’s perfect for right handers, which I am. The blades are even centered with great walk and talk. Firm 6+ pull on the clip with a conservative 5 on the secondary. No safe queen here, this one’s begging for use.
