    If your on the list, please use this thread to post up some pics. I'll highlight your name on the original thread and then send you a PM for your address. Items will not ship until right before Christmas will be here before you know it. Thanks to all that committed to support my good friends at the Forge. Every purchase helps supports each of them and their families.

    Here's mine. Still need to customize it a bit before use.

    Nice handle set-up Bob! :thumbsup: I dig the practical simplicity of black & natural micarta teaming up on a working knife. That a ruggedly handsome tool you got there. ;)

    Sizing up the competition,

    This challenge was good for me. I had bought a Hunter like two days before Bob (BD) opened this up. (Didn't Count)

    I was originally going to grab a Machete. But instead I opted to go in the opposite direction. I'm glad I did. The KE Bushie appears at first glance to be a sweet little woods blade.

    As usual with Andy's knives. It looks great and it feels great in the hand. After a leisurely afternoon, playing around in the sleet and hail. I have developed high hopes for this knife.

    There are several knives nervously wondering if they are about to get shoved to the side. It's that good.

    Thanks for the Challenge Bob. I may not have snagged this one without it. And I'm already glad I did.
