At around 1:52 in the video, they show the bend to the left from a knot. Judging from that spine shot, I’d estimate it to be a little thick for resinguy.Just guessing, obviously.

Also, nice job with the comparison pics, Crag. I had been pausing right around the beginning of 2:20, as Squatch was wiping off the blade. Trying to use the cinderblock and his gloved hands for size estimates. The blade length appears to be shorter than the Scrapizashi, which was around 17.5”.

Got the email and came looking for specs and pricing. Hope the new handle is the start of new large blade designs with Res-C (it is by FAR my preferred handle material). Would rather have a res-c waki than a rucki. Give us a res-c zilla please bossman!

Hope a Stonewash version is offered as well

Or are you not able to Stonewash when there is CBT?

I've done all the spying I can do now. Assuming they're using standard sized materials (2x4, cinder blocks, etc.) in the video, I can guarantee that this blade falls between 15 1/4" - 15 7/8" long.

I'd hedge my bets on 15.5" blade length from handle to tip. Jerry Busse Jerry Busse

Not bad. I was hoping for something a wee bit shorter and more concealable in my thread over on the Swamp Rat forum. Maybe I'll cut the tip back on one... :eek: :cool:

I think Shortening the Rucki would be easier, as there is no CBT

Yeah I LOVE the Rucki tip. This guy is more consistent until the actual tip
Exactly. Plus, the full-height convex might not lend itself to being cut back too well.

I'd think that if a person were to cut a straight line, actual tanto tip ~3" back from the original, and then sharpen it, the CBT here wouldn't really cause any issue. Would probably look pretty darn cool if I think about it. :cool:

Wow almost Perfect on guessing the specs!

I didn't think it would be .25" thick though

It's a good price, so I'll probably get one, but honestly the thickness is disappointing - I don't see the reason for it, given that it's already a fairly shallow saber grind. Concerned that it may not be a great cutter (although in my experience SYKCO edges are more reliably sharp than Busse edges), and the balance may be a bit far forward to be really lively.
