    Hence my sing song about a BG version :) I know my INFI MOAB is incredible, so if offered in SR101, it would be much more affordable for everyone, and everyone will see what all the fuss is about. Performance wise, if built to the same spec as the fat INFI ones, would be exactly the same. The only obvious difference being stain resistance. If they do end up making a BG version, it would no doubt be coated. However I would LOVE an uncoated SR101 version. I absolutley love the way it patinas. In my eyes it gives the knife its own unique character and it looks like a good old school workhorse tool.

    As far is desnisity/weight goes between INFI and SR101, if built to the same specs, I can't imagine it being noticeable. If there is any, it would be microscopic.

    @RobStanley True about it being coated and something I thought about that could be beneficial, I'm yet to see the grind have gremlins, they've always been on the flats after revealing their true beauty as the good lord brought em into this world :D If that basis held true, it's a strippers friend as a FFG. I would certainly strip it regardless and hope for a clean slate- If I'm in Jerry's shoes, I'd add some little touch to it in the pommel or talon so there's no question it's a BG version just to remove any nefarious notions by the unscrupulous, if they exist o_O

    It's a beautiful, sunny day today with a high near 80 degrees.
    It would be even better with a BG MOAB in hand! :)

    I happen to be watching Steve McGarrett in a courtroom at this very moment and this begs the question - "What evidence can you provide to these claims?" ... "Or are we forever to believe this with our own imagination?" :p:p:p I gotta say, I'm all in on your belief but I need something more, something I can hold, fondle, polish and beat the sht out of that which stands in my way

    When I get a BG MOAB (or two :)), I will probably sell all of my lightweight Mistresses. ;):D

    Jerry is probably waiting on a HUGE shipment of thick SR101 steel before the BG MOAB is released. ;)

    We really need a spy in that department. If we knew when the shipments are coming in we could figure out WHAT'S NEXT!

    I think we'll know the BG MOAB release is imminent when there are reports of shifts in the Earth's magnetic field centered around Ohio. :confused: -- ;)
