    Oh my goodness is that one thick piggie . Just how thick was the HogB8 again? I am probably going to pass. Though of course, I really really want one.

    I'm fairly certain the HOGB8 as well as the HOG Gemini were both .350"

    Hell yeah! I love the coffin handle on my Battle Shark, can’t wait to see how it performs attached to this massive chunk of INFI. This is probably my favorite large blade in recent memory other than possibly the FM.:thumbsup:

    Only way it could get better is if there was a Nuked version with satin flats on the blade and a special handle material like the snowhole micarta (or something else special)!

    That Maroon Canvas Micarta goes exceptionally well with that Coffin Handle imo.
    Or, that's just some exceptionally good looking Maroon Canvas Micarta!

    Wowzers! OK, So 3 knives, a Burp, a Battle Shark and the movie star from the movie "Boar" walk into a swing club - After shots of Viagra and steroids they fall into a tangled mess of snorts, grunts, squeals in the "Makin Bacon" room and the love child of this drunken night of mind numbing blissfulness was born ~ Good god man! that's outrageous!
    I don't rightly know where I'm at on it just yet, that's got to soak in for a while LOL! no wonder Jerry is up at the wee hours of the night, he's an evil genius who not only raises the bar, he is the bar.

    I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when he revealed this one and said "Hey gang! We're gonna make this one!" HAHAHA!

    I can’t be the only one(or maybe I am) wishing it was .187, .20 or at least .25 and then have a thick cut nuke at .315.
    Should make a real nice chopper/overall badass type of knife though

    Currently on the fence.

    Argh, you are absolutely correct I think. I didn't actually see that the thickness was .315 until you posted that. 0.315 will look really cool, but it would be a much more usable knife if it was not that thick. I need to really think on this knife now.

    Yep, very true - But the one thing I also see is a lot of material removed so I imagine it's going to be a lot lighter than it looks. If I compare the thickness to the HOGB8, that is a real splitting maul, but it seems the thickness at the major spine allows it to have such a tall profile thinning out all the way. In the belly it seems to be much taller than the hog8 allowing for a shallower angle - It certainly would appear to be in the fat chopper category sort of like a shorter, fatter BB13 with some DNA of the Forsaken Mistress~ and that bowie clip is just rad as hell. Certainly an assault on the open mind HAHA!

    WOW. That is a whole lot of INFI. I am going to have to think hard on this one.
