    Dan,

    I voted for 1/4" handle scales in the poll thread, but it didn't get transferred over to the pre-order thread.

    Please make mine the thick ones!

    Thanks very much,
    desmobob

    Hey Dan,
    My original # was 116, it Looks like you may have added me to the list a second time at #139 when you updated. As much as I would like two knives I'd hate to take a spot from someone else. Thanks for keeping us posted on the progress!

    Okay Dan, I saw the sheaths and I want to add one to my order if it's poss-ee-blay. Then I saw people talking about thicker scales? If so I want those too. Then I saw where the shipping box stuffing will be from nudey mags? I want that too!

    Hi Dan,

    Sorry to bother again, but I have another silly question.
    Is the back of the blade going to have squared off corners (as opposed to chamfered or rounded)?
    Nice, square corners makes the back of the blade a superior tool for creating sparks with a firesteel and for scraping tasks in general (bark off branches, meat off skin).
    Added to that, square back corners also makes the knife a better tool for making/drilling holes in wood with the blade tip.

    / Karl

    Yes, the spine will be squared off from the thumbramp forward.




    It's time to make your sheath preference known (if you've got one coming). Post to this thread to let me know which one you want and I'll update the first post with the number (2 or 3)


    Style #2: Firesteel Loop, metal clip

    Style #3: Firesteel Loop, no clip

    Thanks!
