    First upload the photo to a photo hosting site like Photo Bucket,
    then copy the photo's image code IMG from where the hosting site displays the photo,
    and then paste that image code into your forum reply.

    Still a few numbers left!
    This turned out pretty cool. It's always great seeing pics of
    JK knives and reasons why people would chose them.
    Hopefully we can wrap this up in the next few days and
    great this awesome knife in some lucky guys hands!!!
    Thanks for playing along!

    That's an easy choice - I'd take a ViKtim! Here's ViKtim #1 shown with EDC Kephart #1 - so I'll take #1 if available.
    THX!

    Thanks Daniel!

    A new (to me) JK landed today and it rocks! It started out as a custom blank in 3/32".

    Here she is!
    My Vermont Hunter XL.
    [​IMG]
    - 5 7/8" blade, 10 7/8" oal
    - Rounded spine except for a 1" section 90° about halfway up the spine for a ferro rod.
    - Blade is tall enough to hold and still be 1/2"-3/4" away from the cutting edge for any scraping needs, for choking up, or more detail oriented work.
    - Long enough to use to clean and Butcher game and break down wood and blade height offers weight for lighter weight chopping if needed, short enough to use for fish, making "Try Sticks" and overall comfort. (I make wedges for splitting larger pieces of wood and save my knife from batonning).
    - Low heel will keep my knuckles off of the cutting surface scrapes = dirty wounds = infection = trouble.
    - Plenty of belly for draw cuts and a fine tip for plenty of control when needed. Not only that, but as a Butcher by trade, I am Very familiar with the blade shape.

    This is one of The JK's that I didn't know I needed until I had it in hand. I used it to prep tonights dinner, sorry no pics due to chicken on my hands.
    But it did break down a 7.5 lb chicken Just fine. Joint work, splitting the spine and slicing the breast afterwards. As well as cubing up a squash for roasting.

    Absolutely an immediate fan of this knife, (barring any emergencies) this thing found a permanent home.

    Thanks Todd (TPVT) for the Awesome knife and thanks to Daniel for hosting this.
    Good luck everyone!

    Thanks!
    I think so too!
