    Several months back I posted a comment in this forum that I would like to see some thicker handles offered occasionally. Not all, just some.

    That was back before your Vildmark model was released. I am very pleased with the handle on the one I just picked up from you. It is thicker than the handle on my K Apache. That gives me options which knife is better to choose for specific tasks.

    Warthog badassery. Seems to be my water knife. It's going back to Florida next month and again in August.

    You’re more than welcome to use mine.

    I went through a few months when I wasn’t getting email alerts either. I reported it in the Tech subforum, but never heard anything about it. Then a few weeks back, I began getting them. Over the last few days, I’ve stopped receiving them again.

    Hey Bob,

    Your comment about wanting to see a Vildmark with a shorter blade height got me curious about what you are thinking. Are you suggesting a change to the overall size or just the blade height for some specific purpose? Either way, please expand on what you are thinking.

    Just for kicks, I did some side-by-side comparisons between the Vildmark and a Fiddleback Bush Hermit because I know that you like that model (as do I.)

    Vildmark Bush Hermit
    OAL: 8.515” 8.745”
    Handle Length: 4.700” 4.790”
    Blade Length: 3.815” 3.955”
    Blade Height: 1.270” 1.310”
    Blade Thickness: .149” .120”
    Weight: 5.18 oz. 5.36 oz.

    The Vildmark is slightly more compact than the Bush Hermit. I like the fact that the Vildmark comes guardless (I removed the guard extension on my BH.) The Vildmark’s thicker handle with tapered flats on the front end feels great to me. The blade-to-handle ratio and overall size seem well balanced to me as an all around field knife.

    I guess I could sum up my thoughts by saying that I think the existing proportions of the Vildmark are “just right” as designed.

    Again, I am curious what you are proposing or trying to accomplish with a modified blade height? Do tell Mr. Big Deal. :thumbsup:

    Phil
