    Lol I apologize for the initial mung ... suffice to say I hope we do see more of the lone star on upcoming Friday's.

    Lol, about the only place I sweat the mung is in the flea market, where mung seems to add to the already stressful lives of others. In the other places I just enjoy the conversations, camaraderie, and photos. If it helps I'll post a pic of the one Im totin' today, the Rustic Wrap EDC-II again. I am really digging this knife this way. I like how it very thin in the sheath, so light and discrete yet very comfortable and extremely controllable in use. Now that I have Pippin's Lonestar sorted for the project, I think I want a cord wrapped swedged Lonestar for edc. This one rides really well even in my jogging pants when I am out for late night walks, or in my PJs when I suddenly have to make a quick store run at night. I picked this one up at first to study this model for the project...but then really liked how it feels in hand. I think the cord wrapped models are undeservedly underappreciated. I'm going to post a thread on this one tonight or tomorrow.

    I wholeheartedly agree Sir I've got two "wrapped " blades I love to carry; the above Runt

    [​IMG] and one of Allen's "Short Muks". For most of my needs with my students recycling program the Runt is perfectly suited. When I'm out and about here in the country the larger short muk prevails.

    I don't have as much material for comparison ;), but 3/32" really does seem right for this pattern (and most of my uses, even in patterns scaled larger) all the way 'round-- although I do like the 'wholesomeness' of my Patch knife in 1/8" steel:
