    I was wondering if anyone could post a pic of the Swamprats in a group photo so I can judge the different sizes before deciding which one I want.Thanks in advance :)

    Hello Bill,
    Your wish is my command ;)

    The two smaller knives have not yet been released but should be very soon. The other 3 are available to order on the website at www.swamprat.com

    Any chance you could post a side by side pic of a Basic 9 beside a BattleRat? Andrew posted one on the SRKW forum, and it looked as though the BattleRat was a fair bit smaller??? Maybe it's my failing eyesight, all the tears and drool are affecting my focus...:rolleyes:
    Also, what is the blade tickness of the BR and CT? Are they 1/4" like the Ratchet?

    The BR is a tad shorter than the BB9, but it is a fair bit "beefier" too, IMHO. A bit larger aspect ratio, and a more forward balance IIRC. The BR and CT are 1/4" thick.

    Thanks for the help. :D

    I've recently sold all of my Basics(except B3) to get more Rat's so I don't have them to compare.

    And Andrew is correct the BR and CT are both 1/4".

    The 2 smaller knives will be 3/16" though. :D:D
