    Since some of us think this is an overlooked model, how about a dedicated thread to show off our Bushcrafters. Post up some details on your knife and what you like about yours.

    I’ll start.....

    1/8” TT, A2, Wenge
    Favorite wood due to the open grains. It looks and feels very rustic.

    Why, why are you doing this to me? So I can get obsessive about another profile???

    Truth be told, the "Sr" variant has been on my radar... that, or a Big Sneaky

    Great pics guys!

    I have a new liking for this design as an all around user. It's actually fun to carve with. Everyone needs to buy a BC.

    Old pic of a trio. Everything is much too clean in this pic. I'll have to dig 'em out and take it again after 5 years of use.

    Rounded the sharp edge of the wood at the pommel. Wenge and sharp edges don’t work very well. Also feels a lot better

    Makes sense. Love the grain--looks like lots of texture!
