I guess I'm the only one not seeing the pictures, until @xr650r post those above. I like that blade shape, will definitely pick up a couple of these. Stripped, sandblasted SS hardware and micarta handles, is how I would wear this knife!
That looks like it's gonna knock one of my 15's out of daily carry. Uncle E., that is damn sexy. Sheath with the slots looks excellent as well. Are the two long "bars" sticking out of the end for a MOLLE setup? Regardless, I am really looking forward to getting my hands on a couple of these.
Thank you Ethan for this Harpoon style designed blade . It is really nice to see something new that is a departure from traditional styles that is VERY functional & ergonomic, at least IMHO. Great job ! I now see tan at bladehq & black at smkw, also great job ! So looking forward to them.....BH #103.
I love the BK series, especially the tweeners. I have a BK 5 (3 of these, one for my wife and two for me), 9, 11,14, 15 (4 of these, one each for my oldest son, my daughter, my wife and myself, I LOVE IT), 16, 17 (2 one for myself and my youngest, great skinning knife) and now the 18. I really wish KaBar still made the 5, 15 and 17, what a shame. The BK 18 is a wonderful knife! I love the style, the feel and the light weight. Need to get the liner to make the handle slightly wider for my hands. I really like the sheath, wish you had the same for the 15, 16 and 17. I hope to pick up a couple more of these, my youngest is already wanting one. I'll let the wife try it in the kitchen with the BK 5 and 15.
Welcome to the fray my man. Good on you for getting your family sucked into this knife addiction with you. It'll be easier just to buy 3 or 4 of a knife, (so everybody has their own) than to launder your money from the wife, sell plasma or whatever.
Smart man, get them all onboard.
