    I'm liking that BAS and that M43. Of course, how can you go wrong with VUK? Just reshape the handle.

    Yup, I agree on the VUK. EMS, and fingers crossed.

    [edit] Done deal, unless I screwed something up. I do have a talent for chaos.

    Good call on the VUK. I considered it but have a nice VUK with a camo sheath I got a few years ago. I sent an email and got the M-43. I'll remove a little rust for that any day. I already have a 15" M-43 by Purna too, but this was too good to pass up. And, I enjoy doing the work on my knives. One of them will be a Christmas gift for someone.

    I already have 3 M-43s, and I would have snatched that one. That was a great deal on a great weighted M-43.

    Just looks like some beetle holes.
    Superglue and sandpaper trick.
    Just like fixing pin holes in a fretboard or anything else.
    They will stay dark but will be filled and solid.

    The VUK is a great field/trail knife!
