    This model is really growing on me. Can users post up about their experience? Usage?

    Thanks,

    Other than the one on the site I've only made one so far, but it won't be the last!

    Adam,
    Could you share your ideas behind the design? Testing uses? It looks obvious for defense and for breaking down a large animal. I am interested in how flexible it is in a bushy or camp role?
    Thanks,
    Bill

    I actually plan to do a full write up about it in the future, but basically I intended it to be a do it all knife. The blade is narrow enough for bushcraft carving tasks, long enough to lightly chop and baton, pointy enough for defense, bellied enough for skinning,,, etc...... Basically it's a do it all field knife that fits in the hand like a glove.

    I also plan to have a mid-tec version that comes with a sheath.

    Sweet!!! That design looks about perfect for me. I got my early bird ticket, so I will see you first thing Friday. I think you will do really well there.

    Adam,
    Badger arrived. First impression- I love it. I have wide meaty hands and the grip just does it with nothing extra in a strong hammer grip. Comfortable in several positions. The thumb ramp works on both sides securely. I think 5/32" works just right. I look forward to working it and updating.
    Thanks,
    Bill
