    Just wondering who's actually using the knives that they got from me. I've sent a lot of knives to customers, but don't see many pictures of them being used, except for a few people.

    F9339D92-7134-4271-ABC2-237532326F89.jpeg Anyone notice the difference? I use my Kane almost everyday and it is the most used out of all knives I own. The Kephart is in my kitchen knife block and gets used a few times a month. The muddy camp has done a lot for me in the yard and gets heavy weekend duty. The other two barely get touched because of the Kane.

    Bluegill or Worker B&T gets carried and used every day for all sorts of things. Personal Camp sees a lot of use on the weekends.

    The old one i have in my pocket gets used every day. The kephart i carry when i plan on taking some kind of animal apart. From the little one helping me kill coronas its getting a nice patina

    My Bluegill is still firmly entrenched in my pocket. I'm still trying to figure out what edge I like best on my Pocket Chef. Once I get it dialed in how I like, I'll be able to give a more informative review. For now, it's been bouncing between the kitchen and my KME.

    I still use my Improved Bowie as it is one of my favorites from you. I have processed out salmon with it in the past. Here lately I have started using it again in the kitchen. Here is some cabbage and sausage that I made with it. When I receive my Personal Camp from you I will run it in the home kitchen and hopefully process some salmon with it.

    I use mine all the time. Just don't post a lot of pics anymore since the photobucket issues. The other hosting sites such for me and bladeforums always say my pics are to large. Annoying lol

    I get the same thing when I try to post pictures from my phone, so I have to use my camera.

    I sure like your knives John, I have a handful of them, but I don't have a lot of opportunities to use them.

    I got to try the new Camp Knife yesterday! Not a stern test, used it to baton some chunks of a 2x4 for the fire pit. :D

    My stretched worker is my most used knife. If I'm preparing something in the kitchen it's out and being used.

    My stretched Bluegill has seen quite a bit of use for cleaning duck, dove, and even some fish. It's also had some kitchen use, but hasn't seen any since I got my Stretched Worker.

    My new Worker and new-to-me BushCrafter haven't seen much use yet. But they will!

    Forgot to take pictures earlier but I used my twig mangler to cut up some jalepenos for poppers tonight and other various tasks and the budget hunter I use everyday as my main knife.

    Sadly I don't use my knives like I used to, but the worker resides in the knife block and gets used as a steak/paring knife.
