    [​IMG] These are really slick little, big knives. A sleek, comfy handle and a blade thin enough to slice extremely well while thick enough to be a workhorse.
    Show 'em if you've got 'em.

    Congrats on the new JK Mack!

    The worker is a handy little guy to have around.

    I'm really surprised by how slim but comfortable this handle is. It works like a fairly large knife but doesn't feel like one.

    There has to be more than just these two in the wild. I love these pics, but I would love to see more of them.

    I want to say I recall one worker was used prying nails out of a door jam...

    Hopefully these photos are helpful! This is my "semi stretched"/B&T Worker in 154CM. I'll add more pics to the Picture thread later but I thought these could be useful for prospective buyers. It's my first JK knife and I'm blown away!

    I don't think that is Bocote. I would put a dollar on it being Buckeye Burl.

    I used my stretch worker all day today cutting 550 cord so I could hang my 1000 bulbs plus of garlic. Worked very well. Didn't take in pictures though as I was in a hurry lol. Great little blade. Forgot sometimes I was even carrying it.

    Matched His/Hers Arrival Pictures

    Out of the box. Notice the red and black pins to differentiate between his/hers.

    Blades out in the fresh air.

    One of the first things I do for any knife arrival is slather in mineral oil. Beautifies wood, makes blades food safe, remove any other oils that may not be food safe. Check out that ironwood.
