    Among the large pile of steel that was the formidable haul from this year's gathering, there was a rather unremarkable looking Kabar BK9. On the family trip to Star Lake, NY(Adirondack Mountains), I brought along some new gear to try out, and the 9 was among that gear.

    The sheath Toooj sent for my old Camillus 9 looks like it belongs with the Fatboy I recently acquired here on the forums.

    Some pitchwood the 9 dug out of an old pine stump on the property:

    The prepared kindling from a single hanging dead branch:

    The fatwood wasn't very pitchy, so it got used as a platform.

    Enough about the fire, back to the 9. I was really surprised when I felt the difference in how the Kabar performs vs. the Camillus. I'm not sure, but I might have let loose a giddy giggle the first time I swung the Kabar BK9. I've always liked the Camillus, but whatever voodoo Toooj and his crew worked on the design made a significant difference. It is now my favorite big blade. That includes the one I made, the old 9, the 4 and the other machete-type knives, of which I have several.

    We had a good time.

    Sweet pics looks like a great time, you where about a hour southwest of me in the park (I go to Paul Smiths college) The ADK's are really something, just so much to do and so little money for gas :D

    Kabar's BK9 is a great piece of steel. Definitely one of my favourites!
