This will probably be the next knife that I buy, except to get the longer blasde, I will probably just have Newt Martin handmake me one. I just got a handmade big extremely high quality Rambo 3 style survival knife (Rambo 3 knife look, except it has the Rambo Missions type serrations) at an amazing price from Ebay. this beast has a 5/16ths inch thick blade made of 1095 high carbon steel and is 12 inches long and almsot 3 inches wide at widest part. Blade is straight as an arrow and came with a beautiful handmade leather sheath! If I told everyone what I won this massive beast of a knife on Ebay for, they'd probably either call me a liar, that I didn't win it for the price I say, or that I didn't win it at all, LOL! So I will just leave the price talk alone. but lets just say that the Seller of it is Extremely Pissed that, for one, his new employee got this knife listing mixed up with anoither much lower end one( got the prices mixed up) and also is extremely pissed that even with the listing error made by his employee, is made because they feel they still should of gotten several hundred dollars bid on the knife! And my wife just bought me a SWEET TOPS Knives Condor Alert aka CA99 knife for my Birthday/ Wedding Anniversary present! Plus, I got a handmade high quality First Blood movie knife for Christmas that cost $850! That knife is badass just like in the movie. Super thick D2 steel blade and guard, and 440C steel heavier handle and endcap! made my an exceptional knifemaker, and no, it's not the normal knife makers that make the First Blood tribute knives. This knife maker is much more superior than those typical tribute makers. And not at all taking away from their skill. But what I mean is that the guy that made my FB knife has about 45 yerars of knife making under his belt. And he also used to work with the late great Jimmy Lile. I will not say anymore! But, awesome pics my friend. iw as wondering how the Boker Plus Apparo knife held up in comparison to the Newt Martim handmade version. Definitely not like a cheapo United Cutlery First Blood knife-handmade First Blood knife comparison! Again, great job and if I didn't just get my brand new TOPS Condor Alert knife, I would be buying that Boker Plus Apparo knife right away, and will be doing so anyway in a few months!
