    Damn, the Monarch puts it in a better perspective for me. Wish I could swing that Bushcraft Tasker.

    Man, that Tasker is still there driving me nuts!

    @Lady1911 , nice score on the lunchbox knife, beautiful sample of that model! I really like mine, but I am a little biased on that particular model :)

    I can understand why you’re biased, @mistwalker! Right out of the box, it made quick, effortless work of chicken breast and salad greens for supper last night and has already taken up residence in the kitchen. Great knife!

    @Lady1911 This is another one of the models I'm biased on because I told Kyle last summer that he should make a lunchbox chef's knife for me. By autumn we had sorted out the profile and I was getting to put it to use when I was out in the field working. I've used for everything from summer sausage, salami and cheeses to bagels and cream cheese, to making fresh chicken salad in the park while I am out. I'm really liking it so far. :)

    That’s awesome, @mistwalker! It’s cool to know the history behind it, and I’m honored to have one. Many thanks to Kyle and yourself for such a great, highly useful knife. :thumbsup:

    No problem. Yeah, as much as I love the wilderness and survival studies, I still do more crafting of food than crafting of bushes :D

    That Bushcraft Hatchet is cool! Bet it would make a good camp knife for wood or food processing. Wish I had the funds.
