    Rodent 6 finally came in. It's massive. Not that much longer than the Ratmandu, and the grip is virtually identical except for the upper thumb ramp extends into the upper guard. It feels better in the hand in a choked up grip (index finger in the choil) because of the upper guard, IMO. But with the thickness of the blade, it just feels massive. Probably not going to nudge out the Ratmandu in general chores, but for the heavier duty, or camping/woods wandering, it will probably be my preferred. Need to thin out the edge just a little, though. Right now, I think it could cut through fence wire! Great for a combat blade, not so necessary for me. Paid to customize it with desert sage, stayed with black micarta. No pics right now.

    And yesterday evening Lexi sent me this:
    "Congratulations!
    You scored in the recent Blade Ganza!!

    Infi Rmd with tan canvas
    Indi Rmd with black G10
    Infi Rmd with blue/black G10"

    My top choices and again all Rats, all good!! :D:thumbup::thumbup:

    Cheers, Arnt

    Well my birthday RMD was delivered yesterday. Tanker Grey with black canvas and they actually took the time to put a little birthday card in there. This truly is the best knife company on the planet.

    Thank you so much Josh and crew!!!


    The timing couldn't have been any better because Thursday night I was splitting some birch up so my wife and I could have a fire and broke the tip right off the knife I was using at the time so now that knife is about 1/2 inch shorter with a flat tip :). Now that I have a Rat in the house again she is going to expect me to make a fire every night.

    I just got my chopweiler back from getting some edge work done....... It was already great... But now it bites deeper than ever and cleanly shaves hair with no issues. Also got my comp cutter back from getting tuned up as well and it's also performing excellent. Keffeler did an amazing job on both them.
