I could not find a thread in this subforum in the first 3 pages and did not want to post this in general. Mine just arrived and it is a truly stunning blade, the grinds are aesthetically a thing of beauty. Centre of balance is in the handle so feels very nimble. I have heard the sheath will dull the blade, would not be surprised. I can't believe there is not more buzz about this knife, kabar you absolutely have to do a presentation version of this knife.. I don't consider myself a collector but I would start if there was an showcase model of this knife. I don't believe many used the original design as a general bushcraft or survival knife, this design is even less suited for those tasks. Take one look at the profile and it's pretty clear what it's purpose is. I will be ordering a second one asap to mod: sharpen the swedge, possible reshape of the guard, mod the handle. Does anyone have pictures of how they attach the extra dangler option on the sheath, I can't work out what the intended method would look like. I was saving for a recon 1 in 3v but this knife blows that plan apart. Great job kabar, imo the nicest production blade on the market in its category and just a fine looking and well made knife in general.
