    She feels excellent in the hand. And while it does have the same shape handle as the RMD its not exactly to size.

    MountainMandu is 1.46" at widest point of handle And the RMD is 1.32" at widest point.

    The extra width coupled with the added thickness gives you a great feeling purchase on it.

    Its not a light knife, but for its size its quick! I absolutely love it bud.

    Congrats on a greath score- love that Mountainmandu, pure SR-77 awesomeness. Even with 1/4 of what your collection used to be, you still got an excellent collection.:thumbup:

    Thanks for posting on the Rats Forum, should wish some more would do that instead of other places.

    Nice. I prefer the Swamp Rat blade to the BK9 in the pic, but would prefer the Becker scales...if only they got together and had an offspring! Haha

    Wow!! Really interested to hear about how the MMD chops,, I can't help to think it looks like it would want to slip out of your hand,, but Im sure thats not the case.
    Where did you get the scales for your warden??

    I'm also interested in the Warden scales, my little warden is my most carried fixed blade.

    Yessir, im thinking its going to perform really well!!

    The handle actually feels really secure. Im thinking if your hand makes it over the hump at the plunge line and then on to the blade you were doing some crazy stuff with this beast LOL

    The scales came from my buddy Magoo, a member here that lives in Australia, but were made by another member named bpiatt. More info here, http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/showthread.php/1136446-Swamp-Warden-handles
