    It's been awhile since I posted here but since it is a contest I may as well get my 2 cents in. My favorite JK has been the Compact Combat/Survival knife that John offered back in 3/2012. I snagged the first one which may be the only one out there. 3/16" thick O1 made a tough knife that is usually found in my truck console and has cut up food, small game, and been used to baton firewood. The blade is stained but still sharp and the green canvas micarta is smooth rich brown, in all, my favorite JK. SAM_0416 (2).JPG SAM_0418.JPG

    I can't tell you how many times I've come back to look at this Bluegill. It's a beautiful knife.

    The prize will be a $25 voucher on your next JK purchase. Not much, but things are pretty tight here with car insurance this month, home insurance next month, and first property tax payment in May.

    I'll also throw in a custom knife sheath done however the winner wants it, or a custom wallet winners choice!

    Edit:
    Also I'm not in the contest just wanted to post my favorite JK!

    The girls are back from Spring Break with their Dad, and have picked favorite!
    rdrogers is the winner of the $25 credit (they thought the peppers really set it off)

    I like the judges good judgement!! :D Now rdrogers should have a victory lap by making another meal showing the use of the entry knife, or with the eventual one he may get with the discount. And the sheath that tyhiggs throws in will make it a great combination to boot. Congrats to rdrogers.

    I got it today! It is awesome. I hope you saved the pattern, because I’m going to need to commission a couple more for my other Bluegills.
