    No cbt please,only fuller, thick bacon with big fuller,very very strong but still fast:).
    And personally I like choil because it looks sweet.

    #17 with an 11" blade would be an insanely good chopper. But it would basically be a bolo. Convex grind.

    #2 [​IMG] these are my smatchets and everyone is pleasant to me on the, but if to make something average by the size, it will be just ideal!!!

    #8 with expanded fuller, but a hair fatter at the pommel end, I think it needs a bit of a stop for retention on heavy swings.

    I like #7 blade design with the cbt, but with the handle of # 15-18.

    How about #17 with a ffg? That would be pretty epic!!

    Below is my post #54 on page 3 of this thread!

    Here are a few more. . . . All of these are shown with an 8 1/2" Blade and all approx. 14" OAL


    I'm drinking coffee so here's my sober 2 cents :D... 10 or 11 of the above imge post would be sweet. I love the CBT and think it will look really cool on those angels like the HG55. I dig the size as well. Awesome desings though... all of them.

    #17 with an 11 inch blade would be awesome and I would love to see it in addition to the smatchet.

    I'm lovin #15 and #12.

    And while we're desiging knives, I'd LOVE to see a stiletto in the same style as the WW2 FS commando daggers. Shiny satin with black canvas handle slabs. mmmm

    Everybody really seems to love #17! It has actually grown on me quite a bit. I still think something is missing though. Maybe some cbt/lines like #10? Maybe small fuller? What are your thoughts gentlemen?

    Also I think it would look better without the swedge...

    If #17 then saw teeth behind the swedge maybe? But yes I also lean towards a 9 1/2" or longer blade as well. I

    I dig the lance leaf look of #10 and combine it with the swollen fuller of #12 just maybe a slight less swollen. Possible a little longer too, depending on balance
