    Haven't had time to take nice photos of this thing yet but I just gotta share. This RB came in from Jim today and it is spectacular! 80CRV2 & linen micarta. Nice slim kydex rig as per usual from Jim. It fits my hand like a glove.

    Better photos to come once the daylight and my free time are sufficiently aligned. Thanks for looking!

    That's really nice with the micarta. I have my first on order with Jim, and it's in the works right now. I'm really excited for it.

    Yeah, I've wanted some of his work for a long time, but all the performance vids he posts finally pushed me over the edge. That's what I want more than anything...something that will work!

    Honestly, I'm not usually much of a fan of bowies, but yours looks fantastic and you take good pics!

    Philll would have to correct me if I'm not remembering right, but I think it was 1/4" to nothin' convex distalled 80CrV2, about 10-1/4" of blade
