    You'd think Brian would at least remove his real name from his photo hosting account. :D

    Here's an M7 recently completed. I will post more pics soon. Had the full M.O.A. System and just about every possible option.

    Oh man, what a flashback! I packed around one of those for years back in the day! Wish like heck I hadn't sold.

    I liked it, the 440C did fine, the saw teeth on the back aren't really good, would have loved a version without them. All in all, it was a solid knife, that was just about the right size for a camp/field knife, and I'll take the fingergrooved handle over totally round ones any day.

    He caught those fish with a trap that he made with the knife. Him and his Dad are part of my official R&D Team, lol.

    Here's a prototype I just finished up, the W.U.R.Knife (Wilson Utility and Recreation Knife). I will post more pics and specs later, but thought I would share a little now.
