    A closer look at the handle

    More direct on shot than the the previous one I posted

    @Nystagmus nailed it with the description. The heft leans itself forward but with your grip up front you're still in total control. Slide your hand back let the swell of the handle fill your Palm and immediately you get the urge to swing it. I like how the butt of the knife presses up against your hand reassuring you it won't let go. However I really like that its not so big that it distorts the grip from the center of the palm. Its like 2 handles in one.

    Can't get a decent pic with my phone right now, but I noticed the logo and D3V milling on my MC is much finer than my BC and how I remember my LC...looks like the bit was mabye half the diameter. Almost looks like an actual signature:).

    I’m interested to hear how it compares to the FBM. I have a NMFBM and am curious how the compare. Keep us updated.

    Me too! Mine is currently in a USPS box awaiting the leather impresario's visit to the said USPS. Thereafter, it'll be on "loan" till our leather artists Friend catches up with all his current orders. I reckon that I'll have it with me sheathed et al, when the future MC preorder gets going :D

    No comparison imo. I had the nmfbm and the carothers is day and night more comfortable in hand. Feels lighter more agile and better balance. Carothers Mc is the truth

    Well, as soon as mine gets here, I'll be the first to thrash it through some hardwoods somewhere!

    So far I've only toppled :D a buckthorn at the girlfriend's house. We plan on putting in a patio/grilling area and that damn invasive bastard stood in the way.

    Hoping to get out tomorrow or Tuesday for some proper thumping.

    I think you're really going to like the contouring on the scales.

    The BC and MC are sharing the sheath I sent the BC to you in. I'm going to pick up a mashed cat once they're available.

    Constantly swapping sheaths is for the birds

    I figured I'd go ahead and get my sheath made for mine, so it will be ready to go as soon as I get it!

    With the handles being virtually identical it's nice that I can use my BC sheath but I'll be whipping something out on my next days off. I think I might order some OD Green Kydex ;).

    Congrats (almost) Uncle Matty;) Definitely subtle differences between the LC and MC (Blade profile and handles) Seems like i remember Nathan saying the BC was just a tad short of 2 inches (width) wonder if the MC is also? Has anybody measured the Width? Regardless, Now I really WANT ONE:mad: Congrats to everyone who has gotten, or will be getting this beauty:thumbsup:

    You know Tommy, you, me and Grog are all brothers from different mothers ;) "our" MC is right now with Lil Bro Grog :D

    I'm sure that Dan can measure all these once he's more caught up. Judging by the WIP photos which he sends me once in a while, he's been going gangbusters lately finishing up a whole bunch of sheaths for our other CPK-brethren :thumbsup:

    ^^^Thank you untytled:thumbsup: Looks like to me the Blade width is about the same width as the BC-Just under 2 inches (1 3/4?) Nice.
