    +1 to that:thumbup:

    Btw: cant see why a skinny blade would be more suited for that purpose, is another argument in addition to ruining a good knife..

    YES he did!
    And it looks awful!!!
    Tip is gone, but at least there doesn't seem to be any discolouration from overheating though...

    Yep, seen the pics, looks like you would expect it to when thinned with a bench grinder....

    Not thinned... 'convexed'...

    And the pics are too scary to post on a Swamp forum...

    This one is a train wreck, so I'm with Kootaga, my morbid curiosity makes me want to see the pix of the Battle Rat. (Or what's left of it).

    Reminds me of a guy which i once new, he was modding the top end of his bike by putting the top end downunder the front wheel flat side down, then riding his bike down the road to grinding down the top end...

    I would try to get your hands on a Sy Trash 2. It's a 3/16 thick knife that's very similar to a BR. It has been a awesome camp knife for me. I have a Battle rat and other Busse and kin choppers but this is very light and fast in hand. Chops great but lags behind in batoning compared to the BR. [​IMG]

    If it's not stabby enough it would be pretty easy to turn into a clip shape compared to thinning out a whole knife. Just a thought.
