Looks like the stitching could be done better.
How do you like the blade?

Ethan is a real good guy, his wife is cool too, they live on the river about 30 miles from me.

Pretty cool that you know Ethan Becker and his wife! The man knows a thing or two about knives. His knives work and last. The little BK11 is a great, fixed blade pocket knife, for sure. I'd like to make a set of scales for it.

Ethan is indeed very cool. I have been to a couple hammer-in's where he ran a culinary cutting competition. Evil.

The blade is good. Roughly 2 1/2" in length, but quite thick and a full tang, sharp, seems to be holding an edge quite well despite heavy duty use opening letters and packages!

It's CPM154 @ 60rc. It'll take anything anyone would throw at a knife that size. (I've been trying to resist.)

The Essential EDC is also very interesting.


Specs:

Overall Length: 6.2 Inches
Blade Length: 2.7 Inches
Blade Thickness: .141 Inch
Blade Steel: CPM M-4 @ 63-64rc
Weight: 4.7 Ounces

Newest addition...

Here is my newest addition which happens to be my first Randall, a model 18 to be specific.

Honestly I don't know what I am going to do with it. For now it is going to be a safe queen. I know that's sad but I already have a Chris Reeve hollow handle user.

My ever-growing EDC collection:
Boker Plus - Anti-MC
CRKT - Delegate
Kershaw - Leek
SOG - Twitch II

These may have all been posted before, though I thought someone interested in this style of knife would appreciate a size comparison. I have had the SOG for years, but always wished it was a little larger. SOG makes a Twitch XL which I may check out in person, though the proportions just look a little strange to me.

I prefer the flipper which the Twitch and Leek have, though I might come around to the thumb knob eventually. The only non-assist blade is the Anti-MC, though it does get points for being different (ceramic).

Chord is something you play. Or a measurement of an airfoil.

Cord, short for Cordage, is something you wrap.

Sorry. That just bugs the hell outta me.

Depending on whether or not I have to work Sunday, I will be heading down.

No, but a good buddy is going for his JS stamp there. Look him up, Stephen Fowler. Call him "Crowbar".
