    Nice. Never had CBTL since there isn't one nearby, but I've always been interested in giving it a go if I find myself by one.

    We don't have them here either, but I picked up the maker and get the pods from the local Bed Bath & Beyond. (more manly stuff) :)

    To recover my manhood, and keep it on topic, here's a knife:

    I love the shine on the blade on the one with the trinity pin out. I'm hoping any type of 'muk will show up in the flea market with antique bone or cornflower g10. Cool collection!

    What is the over all length of the muk on the bottom and then the third one up? If you don't mind me asking, thank you.

    Hello Chris. Hope this helps answer any questions: Doing the math may give some minor discrepancies (from my ultra scientific measuring process) for a few of the numbers but if anything looks to be out of wack let me know and I'll remeasure.

    No man that's perfect, thank you. Was just kind of deciding which of the smaller ones will fit my needs, going to try my hand at trying to shark one. Killer pictures though!

    I won't bore you all with more pics of my one Nessie, but I will ask to see some more of the new ones that are out in the wild. I'm really liking the looks of the Mini Muk.

    As you all already know, Comprehensivist (Phil) is a great guy. He's always looking out for folks, helping 'em in the shark tank, picking up stuff at Blade for those who couldn't make it, etc. And that's in addition to the reviews and info he provides here in the forum. I've been on the receiving end of his thoughtfulness in the past, and I am again this week.

    A couple weeks ago the Shadetree folk put up another bead auction for Super Ben. I bid on the Electric Orange bead, but then had to go to a meeting and found out after the auction was over that Phil had out bid me. I was happy for him, since he's the Shadetree master and since it meant more was going to Super Ben.

    You bet I was surprised then when a package shows up from Shadetree with the bead and a note saying it was from "a friend".


    When I thanked Phil and asked him why he sent it to me, he said he knew it had been a rough year for me and wanted me to know he was thinking about and praying for me and my family.

    I'm a big tough dude so I definitely did not get emotional over this.

    Thanks Phil!
