    Thanks Rob. I want the patina to form naturally on the blade and food will be part of the process, but wanted the handle protected.

    I went to visit my sister up north yesterday and we had a fire last nite.
    Naturally I had to split some kindling and make a fuz stick despite my sis pouring some 2 cycle gas oil mix on the wood to get it going.
    The Hurly Creek did good.
    Yeah!

    Did you split with it or just shave?

    2 cycle mix definitely started a party

    That really should get popular. Great looking knife.
    I will be getting one once I get settled into my new job.

    Forgot to mention I had it in my back pocket behind my wallet and I forgot it was there when we went to town for breakfast Saturday.(not allowed to carry a fixed blade concealed in WA.:rolleyes:)
    Oh and it rides in front pocket just fine also, just push it over to the outer seam.

    I hope you like it Mack.
    Strike that. I know you'll like it!
    You better, you better, you bet.;)

    Grats on the new job BTW.:thumbsup:

    Mykel - how's the balance on this little baby? Looks like it could be a fun walk and throw.
    A little fluorescent paint on the handle and hiking becomes more of a challenge with a "walk and throw" knife.:)
    I'd be in just for that.:thumbsup:

    Hey Ray, it's handle heavy for sure.
    Balances on my finger pert near an inch behind the guard.
    Don't paint it..wrap it.;)

    If anyone wants one of these, let me know. If there is a demand I will order steel.

    I need a knife to fill my extra pocket slip. You just have made so many i want. Its hard for me to choose. But i am leaning towards this one to fill the void in my knife life.

    You could send the slip to me and you wouldn't have the problem of an empty slip anymore.:thumbsup:;)

    I wonder though whether the HC without scales would fit snuggly in the slip you linked to.

    Well it took me awhile to find that one. I scored it for 10 bucks. I might have to order one just to see if it fits

    All the next versions of Hurley Creek will be 1/4" thick too - is that right?
    Size and price just like the original? (Now that I've ordered one. :rolleyes:)
