    Finally got a chance to really use my Tusker on a overnight with my son last weekend. Sorry for the weak photography, but I'm a Tusker user, not a photographer.

    Taking out a sapling for a hiking stick was pretty quick:

    Nice sheath.

    Some fire prep:

    At 1/4" thick, the Big Boar will get 'er done:

    Scott's super generous choil lets you choke right up there for feathering, notching and such:

    Yup, the BBT is a keeper for sure.

    This is not actually an "in the field" picture, but a very good friend of mine gave me some doe meat this morning, so I grabbed the o'l 5" Tusker and began takin' care of business.

    Awesome shot! Can I ask bout the two wrappings on the handle. What are they?

    Two more: Is the blade patina'd or is that just dirt from use? And where did you get that sheath? Looks great!

    thanks man. this blade and i have been through all kinds of shit together haha. that's an all natural God-given patina right there (the blade is clean compared to normal...it's actually wiped off with some oil on it). and the handle is nothing special, standard 550 paracord lanyard and grip tape you get a sporting goods store. both help with control in the muck. oh and the sheath is a spec ops survival sheath ( http://www.onestopknifeshop.com/store/spec-ops-brand-survival-sheath.html ) with a leatherman blast, bic lighter, mini flashlite (can't remember the model right now) and a eze-lap sharpener. anything else i need i improvise ;-)
