    Just opened her up. I've never held a little knife that felt like this. Fat and fills the hand.

    That handle is a lot beefier than i thought it would be. I like it though.

    Looks like it would dress a deer easily. Next weekend is opening day here in TX. Hopefully some lucky hog will post up a report of how it does. Very neat little knife.

    Maroon Canvas :)

    Always nice when you get something that's better than expected. This knife is definitely a case of "eye of the beholder" kind of ugly cool.. but definitely function first. Feels great in hand to me but plenty of options for the modders out there.

    Sorry for quick post and pics, only have a few minutes..

    Very unique handle design. It looks comfortable like you could put most of the pressure farther back and let the fingers near the blade do that scalping'!

    OMG! That looks so good! I'm so happy I scored a maroon canvas off the waitlist, I'm just waiting on shipping notification.

    Anybody got a set of calipers? Would love to see how thin these are ground at the edge, considering there is the whole 'scalpel' designation in the name and allÂ… ;)

    Mainly I would just be curious to see how far up the blade .010" thickness runsÂ… or you could just give behind the edge thickness.
