    After seeing Christof's submission to the WSS Machete contest, I decided I had to have him make me one. So I contacted him, and some weeks later, I have it in my hands.

    I asked him to make it identical to the machete he made for the contest and he did so, but suggested a slightly shorter length. End result is 14.5" of hair popping 1/8" 1080 steel with a burlap micarta handle. The blade is perfectly balanced, and handles extremely well. I can't wait to get it out in the woods to put it through the paces.

    Christof's service was phenomonal, and the end product far exceeds my high expectations. I can't recommend Koyote knives highly enough. :thumbup:

    I'll post a user review later, but for now, here's some pics:

    Here's a picture of it riding where I bought it to ride; on my Mystery Ranch long bow pack.

    Sweet photos!

    Don't forget a bit of plumbers tape or something on the screw threads when you get a set up you like on the belt hanger (but you don't need the belt hanger for the pack :D )

    I did make a slight modification in the tip profile, I think it works out pretty decently.

    Good looking blade. But then, I expect nothing less.

    Until the zombies come,it will get plenty of action chopping wood and brush, making hunting hides, and doing general backpacking and camping duty. ;)

    Not that I care but what is the price? and how long is the wait because I think instead of a new rifle I want one of those. But seriously if anyone could direct on where to order one of those I would be greatly appreciative. That is just a beautiful blade

    Christof has a web site with a contact link at the top of the page: Koyote Knives

    He also has a sub-forum in the maker's area: Koyote Custom Knives

    I've ordered a couple knives from him; he should be able to help you out.

    don't tell a maker you don't care what the price is :D

    PM or email [email protected]
    Wait time is a bit variable since I'm in the middle of moving house, but not too long, in any event.

    Wow! Christof that thing looks awesome!! That thickness should make it a very sturdy blade, and I love the sheaths on your larger blades.

    I really like the handle.It is small enough to allow it to rock in your hand as it should when chopping and long enough to use the end for a power blow or choke up for more precise work.
