    Nice Esquire! ;) Someone say "the blues"?

    Edit: Not a Bear Cub after all ... was marked incorrectly on BladeCo USA. However, still a very nice Bushnub II
    (blue shirt is reflecting in the blade btw)

    Great picture, and I always enjoy seeing that particular knife-- a favorite pattern clothed in favorite appointments (Shadetree navy over natural and white). So nice!

    My own Esquire rode right here through the week end:

    Which Saddleback wallet do you (did you?!) have, and where'd it go...? :confused:

    Holy smokes, that's a Bear Cub? :eek:

    (It looks more 'bellied' at this angle.)

    Oooohhhh. Beautiful colors and spalting. You're right, I do like this pattern. :thumbup:

    Ain't it too pointy for you? :p


    Cool picture! I like how it shows of the 'bookmatching' of the handle covers, as seen in the mirrored striping. :thumbup:


    No blue knife for me today(!), but Robert done me good: I carried my Sylvrfalcen today, and used it to open the box its pants arrived in-- packed in shredded whatsis of a certain color!

    I had what they described as a "misbehavin' stitching on that bifold."

    I bought it in 2011 and they are sending me a replacement.

    To be honest, I'm questioning the model and need to send a PM inquiry to Phillip for some verification. Either way I really like the knife. It is just soooooo similar to my Bushnub II its crazy. Same OAL, same blade length, same handle .. the tip drops a bit more on the Bear Cub than on the Bushnub II but not by much. The handles are very similar but you can tell a few distinct differences. The Bear Cub handle is a tad bit taller. The Bear Cub lower rear handle curves down MORE than the Bushnub II and I thought "How does this interfere less on Sarah's persnickety pinky?"

    The more I look, the more your knife isn't a Bear Cub. :confused:

    VANCE to Aisle 5 for a Pattern Check. VANCE, Aisle 5.

    A Bear Cub's handle is a much more straight shot to the end, the blade less bellied and the tip pretty much in line with the bullseye:

    Thanks for the pics! Ummmmm yeaaaah .. me thinks, since BladeCoUSA had the Hiking Buddy / Handyman confused, I probably bought a Bearnub II :D

    Oh well, I still like this knife but it means I still need to get my hands on a Bear Cub to see if I like them or not.

    Thanks

    I was initially worried, but I'm happy to report that I get a ton of enjoyment out of seeing you carry that 'falcen. Definitely more than I would have gotten out of it myself.

    What pants did you grab for it? I'm going to guess a Diomedes ISP in walnut....
