    I love choils. I love that choil. Well done sir. If i did not just spend my stash, that would be mine. I think that is the perfect outdoor knife. From a man that owns many factory choppers, but no custom choppers. :thumbup::thumbup:

    Alright, I'm very seriously tempted as I just sold an ESEE Junglas and while I have a great Ozark Bowie(8" blade of .30" CPM4 steel), I'm finding I could really use that extra two inches of chopping length. Just hope my wife doesn't need another new toilet before I can work the finances!!
