    PS: Haven't forgotten about this thread, just been CRAZY BUSY!!!

    Have had the CGWF-HOGB8 with me constantly since it's arrival. Hope to get some outdoor pictures up in the next couple weeks. Meant to snap a few pics of the knife while working the Pawnee Fire last weekend, but as you can imagine, I kinda had my hands full with other priorities.

    Stay Cool this weekend and CONGRAT's AGAIN to you all!!!

    Here's an array of the Basic 8 blade styles I have in my possession, for comparison, in case it's of interest to anyone:

    B8 4-blade edit.jpg
    Top-to-Bottom: Basic 8 LE, Basic 8 War Feather (Custom Shop--ground by Garth), satin HOGB8 Long Clip with PT, HOGB8 Standard blade with PT (BIG/DC)

    (The original War Feather mod shortened its blade length to about 7 7/8”.)

    What really stands out is how much more Ricasso there is on the HOGB8. Nice set of B8's Pard..:cool::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks my friend. The edge lengths are actually about the same from heel to point. Looks like they moved the plunge grind forward a tad on the HOGB8, more toward the front of the choil.
