I have the same sentiment about the BF 86. If decide to make mine a user, I’ll be doing the same. Nice job!
It's way too nice not to use!
Q. What’s black, and white, and red all over.
My OFJ needs some patina on that shiny blade and fresh canvas.
Repetitive I know but it’s hard to argue with perfection.
That is really nice work. Though micarta is not my preferred material, I really like the barehead look and the shield choice, it looks fantastic.
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.
Did you mod this yourself? Amazing work.
Yes sir I did. Thank you!
curiously, whats the weight difference with the blade out and the end cap off?
450 pounds!!! Lol. I have no idea. An ounce, maybe 1.5 oz.
Can anyone show the Bladeforums knife compared with an 82 Possum Skinner? I would like to see closed length, width, and thickness. Thanks!
Here ya go!
Length Closed: BFC = 3.87" . . . . #82 = 4.16"
Width Center Pin: BFC = .535" . . . . #82 = .445"
Length Main Open: BFC = 6.84 . . . . #82 = 7.16"
The Skinner's clip main is 3.00" on the dot, while the BFC's sheepfoot is 2.97".
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.
