FINALLY got around to doing a video of the BB13. It's certainly a monster chopper!

Here's a chopping comparison with the MOABOLO and the 1311. All 3 knives are amazing choppers and I reckon they're all pretty much on par as far as chopping power goes.

LOVE the thin SR101 on the BB13. The sweet spot seems to be a little more forward on the blade that the MOABOLO and 1311.

Enjoy the vid!

This is the video I was waiting for! Super glad I got the 1311, that thing is a beast. Won't be using my CG B13 till I can find someone local to thin out the edge ..it came sharp yet pretty obtuse. Kinda like a chisel where the sweet spot is.
I think the CG B13 will be king with a thinner edge put on it

I've been waiting for this video. Thanks Rob! Do you have a CG BB13 on the way? I think a lot of us would love to hear your opinion on that vs the 1311.

The 1311 kept sticking in the cut, not sure that it could be king chopper when you have to exert so much energy to pull it clear.

My thoughts exactly ----- I thought the BB13 BG looked like the winner here

Great vid, thanks! The BG BB13 looks like it did awesome. Still sort of want both, but will probably just stick with the CG since I also have a 1311.

Excellent video, thanks for putting it up. How would you compare the grips on the moabolo versus the resiprene on the bb13 and 1311?

Top drawer, Rob...thanks!

Appeared to me the BB13 out chopped the field...

but all things considered, such as, the $$$ outlay and versatility and weight considerations--- the 1311 may win the day yet.
