    Looks like it's just you and me so far Hank_612 so I'll post another one. GSO 10 with tan and brown G10 handles. Put some strontium aluminate in the epoxy when I laminated the G10 so the edges glow ever so slightly in the dark. [​IMG][/IMG]

    Is that a collaboration with Bark River ?

    Correct. The prototype blanks were ground by Bark River for Survive.

    Awesome sixes. The skull crusher resembles a Koster Muck.

    If you check out Guy's youtube channel, you can see some early models being tested: https://www.youtube.com/user/surviveguy/videos?sort=da&flow=grid&view=0

    I have no idea how many prototypes were made, but they are certainly a rarity even among Survive! knives. :thumbup:

    I do remember some discussion way back about Survive offering some custom shop work.The fit and finish on those prototypes is something that I would be interested in......

    Will BRK ever live this down?
    I've been totally pleased with my Bravo Necker 2. I still hear people bringing this up. Isn't that like bringing up ZT's "ELMAX HT problems" at this point??

    *shrug* Have they changed their practices? Has MS changed his nature? I'm sure KAI worked on their HT protocol. But eitherway, this is a S!K thread, and I doubt smack-talk of other companies is appreciated.

    Sometimes looks opaque (and looks great with black pants)
