    The leaf shaped blade of the EDC/EDC2 has been on my horizon for a while now. When @rcartmell3 listed this EDC in the flea market I knew I had to have it due to what I think is an unusual feature.

    The liner and pinstripe are stacked in reverse of what is normal. I do not know if this is rare, but I have never seen it done this way before.

    Mwah mwahhhh .. it headed in somebody else's direction. I got a Navy / Natural Bushfinger today. If someone here ordered that one, please drop me a line and maybe we can do a direct swap?

    Mistakes happen :rolleyes:

    Didn’t have time to do much more than slice an apple with it today. I hope to get an earlier start tomorrow so I can post up some thoughts about it.

    Something about this knife makes me think about past times and yet it is scheduled to be delivered to me sometime in the future.

    Sweet! Which model is that?

    I’ve got a Pro-Kephart on the way. I kept running across @Bmurray praise for it, plus others in this thread, and was convinced to give it a shot.

    @ngomong That P-K should be a solid performer, enjoy. My new on the way Handyman 1/8 TT ^^^ should be a great addition to my small but ever growing EDC collection. I know that on the smaller knives 3/32 is all the rave right now but I like 1/8 TT just as much.

    As far as I know, all burls are stabilized before use. Though I could be wrong.

    This is my second time sharing this knife. I hope to have it by this weekend!
    Glacial Blue scales are one of my favorites!

    Blue333 I'll join you. I've been watching for a simple Natural Canvas Handyman for awhile. This showed up at DLT and I was finally able to snag it. Thankfully it was still there.

    (I apologize, I'm not sure how to reduce the pic size)
