    Thanks Huy, just havin a lil fun :)


    ETA: I tried to fit Ban Tang in there, turned out to be too hard. Had to settle for that, or even shorter (at the cost of less light):

    :D A BT4 and a blunted pikal for skinning purposes.

    The BT4 is (like another guy stated in the bushcraftcontest) hands down the sharpest knife I have ever had :cool: . The ti pikal has a very toothy edge. Really looking forward to use it on this years elkhunt.


    Great work Ban, just awsome! :thumbup:

    Great knife for edc! Light enough to forget it's in pocket until needed. Thin enough to fit in pocket with a cell phone.:thumbup: Thanks Ban.

    Yardhook,

    Good job on the cordwrap. Nice leather pocket sheath :thumbup: Did you make that as well?

    Thanks for the compliments. The handle is still a work in progress, I keep re-wrapping it with different types/diameters of cord to see how the grip feels. The leather pocket sheath took me a while, but it is in finished form.

    Works great for pocket carry.

    Ban,
    You make some absolutely stunning knives. If I ever had the money and an opportunity to purchase one I would be all over it. Keep up the good work!

    It's a little early to try my BT4 in the game fields but it's never too early for food prep duties, so today I used it to slice and dice a Champagne mango which was then mashed, mixed with garlic and habanero granular, spread over cod fillets with mushrooms, and baked. A rather tasty start for the BT4!

    The mango and cod looks yummy! The BT4 don't look too bad either ;)

    Thanks guys for the comments. The BT4 and the mangos both performed excellently. The Champagne mango is called the Carabao mango in the Philippines. With my last wife, I purchased 2 hectares of a Carabao mango plantation and had big plans for it but ended up giving it to her in the divorce as foreigners can't own land there. A classic example of "She got the gold mine, I got the shaft".
