    I like it. I think it would be better without the potentially weakening holes in the blade, but it's cool as hell anyway.

    Are the holes functional, or decorative? If functional, how so?

    The holes in the blade are there because they look cool...plain and simple. :D

    Kind of a different take on the fuller-as-a-blood-groove idea.



    g moutafis - shoot me an email - I should have some done in 3-4 weeks.

    Very very nice. I really liked that carry system you have there on the other thread before your hunt.

    Darn that looks like decent protien for the table. Nothin like taken them with a good sharp knife. SOOOOOWWEEEEEEE!!

    Great knife. I thought the blade hole's function may be to allow air in to reduce vacuum easing insurtion and removal from the hog.

    Sure, why not. :D


    All I know is...it was easy-in / easy-out on that hog. I felt very little resistance. The proper technique is to put the knife in a little high, and then push down to open up a large wound channel. Was way easier than I imagined (considering a hog is basically a walking carpet full of dirt/mud/etc).
