    I was going to poach your photos from that thread you did on the SHE2, but then saw they were MIA thanks to Photobucket.:rolleyes:

    So I had to dig a little deeper. Still really like that knife. :cool:

    I feel BAD for the hungry little fella, but I'm hoping the feed it would normally have been given was fed to a certain HOG blade to fatten it up.:D

    Well, since this is the Basic 8 thread, it makes sense to keep it with a basic handle and I voted as such. I'm just excited to see whatever Jerry came up with for the final solution to be offered sooner than later. I went for broke during OP2W and won't be repeating that mistake this time around. The HOG B8 is definitely on the buy list though.
    As for the SHE-2, I was surprised to find out that the slightly thinner .22" BMe-2 with maroon canvas was almost the identical weight to the .25" SHe-2 with G10. So that tells me the blanks have to be within about an ounce of each other and both feel great in the hand. For me the BMe-2 is the just slightly the winner of the two. A basic handle on a blade splitting the difference between them could be amazing.

    Oh well, I guess it could have been worse. He could have posted something like this...
