    EMS for the 12 inch 21 ounce BDC by Anil. The fullers look amazing and the handle wood is a nice color. Interesting cho on this one, and an extreme curve.

    Got the Done Deal.

    The profile reminds me of the Baby Foxy Folly blades that have been posted a few times, but at almost 2 oz per inch, this seems a lot more robust than those.

    Agreed on all counts, that was tempting, thanks for saving me.

    I sold my favorite M43 to a co-worker for his son's bday gift.

    So, I need a replacement....DD BTW.

    I received the package a week ago, opened it today. I've been letting packages age for a while like fine whiskey, just in case they might be carrying the dreaded virus. One never knows.

    This knife feels as good in the hand as it looks. The extreme curve of the handle provides a great backstop for the hand, locking the grip in place. The knife has a good heft, more than the usual BDC or Foxy Folly. I'm very pleased with it.

    The brass chape came loose in the box, but a bit of superglue fixed that right away.

    I got the little brother yesterday. It is outstanding. You are not kidding about the extreme curve! I love it. Did yours have curved tiny knife tools too? Mine are really curved. Vary rare style knifes. I am super pleased with it.
