    I'd bet @Cohutta himself does.

    I think I do, but they’re VERY early blades that don’t need to be seen in public. If the weather cooperates I should have some this weekend

    @Panthera tigris if you’re ever around Waynesville NC on the parkway, check out Black Balsam bald and Tennent Mountain in the Shining Rock wilderness. Amazing place

    This past weekend I had my Talona (this always makes me think of that song "My Sharona") help me with some fire starting and kept it on my belt while splitting firewood.

    At some point in the day, I happened to notice this group of Pink Ladyslippers out in the woods. These wild orchids take ten years or more before they flower like this. They are a protected plant in Georgia.

    Below is @Cohutta's take on the classic Kephart design, and I have to say... I absolutely love this knife. Obviously, there's the stunningly beautiful desert ironwood used on this particular knife, but the model itself is amazingly comfortable in hand. The handle has no palm swell or similar contouring. There is the slight outward flare at the forward end common on most Cohuttas and Fiddlebacks. At the butt end there's another very gradual outward flare. When placed on its side onto a flat surface, the two ends of the handle contact the surface with a gap between them. Here, let me just show you...

    The handle can probably be best described as "full". It's more roundish on the sides in a way that fills the hand nicely. To me, this is what makes the knife feel so comfortable in a variety of holds and prevents fatigue during extended use.

    I've only begun to use this knife, but I'm looking forward to taking it out in the woods a lot more.

    @Nbrackett awesome collection! It also happens to be really helpful to me because I am having a hard time choosing between the B&T, Wolfpen, and Baby Bearpen.

    Very tough decision but I mentioned to Russell just today that the BBP is one of my all time favorites. Can’t go wrong with any of them though.
