    Naw just needs a blood groove, some sawteeth on the back, and a bayonet mount. Maybe a surefire light mount too.

    That's our whole marketing technique, Horn Dog. Whack something with it, get blood on it in some exotic 3rd World locale, post the pic up and it will sell! Meanwhile, we'll go back to using our Tramontina machetes....Seriously.

    Yall may think I'm joking but I don't even carry one of our knives when we're doing our training. Most of this is because I'm usually reviewing someone else's knife, but mainly it's because I either want a folder (SAK is fine) or an 18" machete for what we do (I'm going to the jungle in a couple of weeks with a Bark River bumble bee and a machete). Now, when we finally make our folder, that whole scenario will change. I carry and use a folder every day of my life. Once we get ours on the market, you will hear me sing a different song!

    I'll buy one and I don't say that about much that ain't INFI or related. I do own a Rat 3, really like it. Want to take one and remove the scales, cord wrap it and have a sheath made for it. I also need an Izula...

    Yep, a good folder and a machete is all I need, too. But I do occasionally use the bush knives. It isn't that they're useless, it's just that a machete works better for most chopping chores. I had one of those .31" thick Busse Fat Fusion Battle Mistesses. Heck of a chopper and worked great for a splitting wedge on maple. But it weighed nearly two pounds without the sheath, so I never carried it. Your new RC, whatever you name it, will at least not be too heavy to carry and light enough to slash through vines and such.

    Aye, you're missing my point. Cant the blade downward, curve the spine in stead of just an angular transition, but keep the edge straight, i.e. not curves like a kukri or parang.

    Know, reading Jeff's posts about this blade made me laugh, truly. Because I KNOW I will buy one of these puppies, and I KNOW it will get used once in a great while, when I make up an excuse to put it to work, but otherwise it will sit in the draw next to my RTAK, RD-9, BK-9, KaBar Cutlass, etc etc etc. The ONLY reason I really would have to buy this puppy is because it is a RC product.

    Of course the flipside of that is the fact that if I ever did need it, it wouldn't let me down.

    And that's something I agree with and am proud of when it comes to our product.

    Looks great, thanks for another must have blade from Rat Cutlery.

    The thing I've come to realize this summer, is that a ten inch blade isn't the perfect tool for any job. However it's something I'm much more likely to carry with me on a day or two hike in the woods type situations, than an axe/hatchet/machete. It may not get used often, but it's much easier to take 'just in case'. Having been on the cold and chilly side of that before, me likes this pointy.
