    Cool batch! And some interesting stuff going on in there. Haven't seen O1 in a while. And is the "Monarch - Blackout Honeycomb - Black Liners - Lime Pinstripes - 7.75” OAL - 1/8” A2" really A2? If so, what is with the spalting??

    that is the Bushboot that Andy made as the "Model Standard" to send off and have the CAD files (or whatever is needed in order to make a run of Mid Tech's done). That was a couple years ago and has been sitting in the vault. No Mid Tech Bushboots are in the plans.

    I'm experimenting with stippling the flats on some of the knives. We have found a new method for this and are working out kinds with it. I like the look a lot.

    Merlins beard! This is a fantastic batch. Desert Ironwood looks stunning. When these go off I’ll be in the air enroute to Scotland.

    Wow!! The Recluse and Runt set is really sweet!! I love the handle on the KPH!! I don't even hunt big game and I'd love to have that one. I wish I could have a swedged Bushboot with that handle material!! Mainly though, I wish I could afford the honey comb Monarch. It would be sweet for a project I have in mind for later.

    I see what you did there with the runt and recluse. Super nice matching combo.

    Wow! I really love this batch! I am so tempted to throw my hat in the ring for the scandi Monarch, but it would be irresponsible on my part having just put down a large sum for a custom order today.
