    I haven't seen any threads about this newer release, so I thought I'd kick it off.

    I've had mine for a week or so now and it seems like another winner, just like last year's 5.5" Hunting Knife. I do wish they would have stuck with 1095 instead of switching to 1075 though. The price was also about $7 or $8 more than I paid for the 5.5" Hunting Knife, but I think that knife was really under-priced and I think ~$30 for the Kephart is fair. The sheath is the same quality as the sheath that comes with the Hunting Knife, that is to say... It's ok. Not bad, not great. The handle on the Kephart has a bit better fit and finish than the handle on the Hunting knife, but neither are super great.

    I'm currently making some new handles for both the Kephart and the Hunting knife so these will be the only pics I can take for awhile.

    Just when I got a 5.5"! It sure looks like the additional cost reflects the extra labor put into modifying the knife, a bargain really!
