    Figured out something that I think works well with the JAB Potbelly. Took a rubber hand strap that came with one of my 4Sevens flashlights and put it on the handle.

    Are those handles available to purchase or only available with the flashlight?

    It's a little long, so you have to double one of the ends back on itself.

    You sir are McGyver! That looks like a really snug fit that will help with the grip. Does it work better than a lanyard?

    As long as you aren't trying to just grip the bottom. I took it off because I didn't like how it looked, but stuffed it in the sheath pouch. Would come in handy doing a lot of chopping. I can imagine hand fatigue becoming an issue. Last time I tried to do some serious chopping with a SOG Tactical Tomahawk, I thought my hand was going to die and fall off.

    I'll probably wait till my turn comes up in the Brute passaround. I'll probably have a Machax by then, so it will be a BK9, JAB PB, BK1 Brute, BK4 Chop-a-thon.

    BTW Kabarcamper. Upgrade your bladeforums membership! At least the $10 Basic one. Then maybe people could actually contact you when you win a GAW for a cliched BK11!!!
