    Are these a limited run, or are they going to be available all of the time? They seem to be a hit.

    The Smoke Jumper came along for some fishing and hiking today, with the hopes that I could use it to clean some dinner... that didn't happen:( I only ended up using it to cut up some discarded mono. Oh well 20180802_164354.jpg

    Looks like mine shipped today! Pretty darn excited to get this one.

    Really like the color and the sheath. (At least I like the pics you all are posting!) :D

    This most likely won't be a limited run. Probably have a reorder at some point.

    Well ... I "modified" my Smoke Jumper.
    I filed off that nub on the lockbar. :)

    I'm going to keep posting pics... I'm pretty smitten with the Smoke Jumper. I can't wait for the next version (blue w/drop point, oh yeah!) to come out. Anyways, occasionally I use one of my folders around the kitchen just to see how it performs with a larger variety of task. The Smoke Jumper handled cubing up some potatoes for breakfast without a hitch!

    So I got my Smoke Jumper yesterday. What a great knife! The light weight...amazing. Upgraded blade steel, nice.

    I gave a new 110 auto a try recently. No go. Just too darn heavy for me to comfortably EDC.

    This Smoke Jumper is a different story entirely. The sheath and color are really fun and sure to draw a lot of attention here in the land of "Go Big Red".

    Mine has no blade play and the fit and finish is nice. For under 40 bucks shipped, this knife is had to beat, price wise. I like how it rides on my belt so far, I hardly know it's there. Happy with this purchase!

    It's delivered so I'm going get it for lunch break. Gonna use my original 110 to open the 110lt. I'll be sure to get some shots in this thread. Pretty stoked to get my hands on cpm154 for this price. It's gonna be used for sure

    I can tell already this is gonna be a great knife. It has a little play but nothing that concerns me. Very sharp from the factory. CPM154 is a good balance of performance for me. I have some customs in it and I've used 154CM before. Well worth the asking price just don't how it's available at that price.
    Excuse the quick and dirty shot. Don't have time to glam it up.
    Here it is next to a classic

    Cut some nylon webbing and a few cuts on some extension cords. Still shaving sharp. My coworker wants one now.

    Those Smoke Jumpers are gorgeous! I’m not sure I’d want the red for EDC, but it’d be great for outdoor use. Easy to find if dropped in the grass or weeds.

    I do like the upgraded blade steel. I have been using my regular LT for some time and love it. I have to laugh, I just found this thread, but I, too, installed a Leatherman pocket clip. Guess great minds think alike!

    My screw and nut are not as nice as the other gent’s set up, but I’ll upgrade eventually.

    I've been putting my SJ through it's paces. Sharpened it and then I started carving hickory, cutting more extension cords, cardboard, plastic wrap, Manila rope, nylon webbing, etc, etc. I'm really enjoying the performance from this heat treat. Buck did a fine job on this knife. Worth every penny indeed. I'm ready for the blue one now.

    Took a trip to Glacier National Park this last week. Decided it was a good place to use and test my own Smoke Jumper. Mostly light duty around the camp kitchen, but lent it out to other to use. Rave reviews all around. glacier 1.jpg
