    This knife is pretty cool with the clip point and penetrator tip. I just seen one sell here and it was sweet. :thumbsup: I wouldn't mind one myself.

    Mashed Cat taco in Olive Drab for the HOGB8 Standard profile--also stands in as a sweet pack carry for the War Feather (long clip). No rattle, no blade scuffing and smooth insertion/extraction with either knife.:cool:

    Waiting on leather fancy pants for my WF belt carry.;):thumbsup::D

    (Thanks again to Rob_Mob for letting Eric use his knife to press my sheath:thumbsup::cool:)

    Finally got mine in the mail (and coordinated with the post office)!

    As many others have said, this thing feels like a BEAST! I can't wait to use it. Whoever sharpened the blade did a GREAT job. Probably the most impressive I've seen from the factory.

    If I had name a gripe, it would be that the handle is a little on the small side for my hand. I love the feeling, just wish there were a little more to hold on to. I can see hot spots forming if I'm swinging it hard for an extended amount of time (but gloves solve this issue pretty easily, so it will still be abused without hesitation).

    i contacted both to know the specs of the screw so i can get new one myself from the local store and lansky sent me for free longer one so +1 to them! they work with the hogb8

    and i will repeat myself this knife is the best one to chop wood, only need 1-3 hit on the spine so the edge goes into the wood, after that the edge never touch the wood, it's all about the heel and the fact that it is so wide, it make a very nice wedge!
