    I'm going on a little 10-20 mile day hike tomorrow and I'm trying to decide how to take GatorBane. In reality, is she too heavy to take along? It's 50/50; she's pretty heavy. If I can secure her to my pack; she's coming along.

    Animals that I'm likely to come across:

    Snakes
    Gators
    Bear
    Coyote
    Armadillo
    Fish
    Rainbow People (These are the nefarious hippies that live in the woods and travel around FL) If I see any Rainbow People, I'm shooting an azimuth back to my vehicle, and aborting the hike.

    I'd go for something superlight and slicey-dicey like Sierra's fighter if I was doing a sneak and there was a LOT of snakes and such- I'd be a lot happier, if I ended up using a knife, with gatorbane against gator or bear or rainbows.

    Well they aren't exactly user pics...

    I was visited by KGD a few days ago and had the opportunity to handle another one of your knives, Christof.

    As Ken would confirm, I was most impressed and even ended my drawn out analysis with the word "perfect". Then it hit me like a 5lb cross pein hammer!! This knife was worthless!!! (joking, of course... bear with my sarcasm).

    There was no maker's mark!!!!

    [​IMG]

    This knife could verywell have been made THE CHRISTOF HARPER of Koyote Knives but without the mark, I have to accept the fact that I might be holding a cheap knockoff..... lol.

    BUT......... don't worry buddy..... I had the technology to remedy the situation...

    All joking aside, I was honestly impressed with the knife... and I am a picky suminabatch!

    I have started stamping tangs- That's one of the last of the ones I didn't. What you need to do now is superglue the mark on there! :D

    That's sweet, it's always great to get knives into other makers' hands for a look see.

    Here's a smaller EDC for me that just got finished- until someone tells me they really really want it with the LH sheath. Then i'll have to make another one for me.

    5.25 OAL with a 2 3/16 blade. Maple goodness. And a firesteel by C_Bryant

    Love it.

    Hey is that a hair tie holding the firesteel in? If so, good idea.

    it's shock cord- which is eleastic braided covered cord- hair tie stuff. Hell, this one might even be a hair tie, I have scraps all over.

    you like maple, I know, and small knives. It is a sweet firesteel- it's been used a bit.

    that is an awesome patina job. Like oiling wood, there's no substitute for time on the job!

    Christof is going to ban me from this thread one of these days :D I was board and after being forced by the Mrs' to do housework all morning, I needed to go beat on something. Big koyote traditional leuku and original ranger RD-9 did some chopping :D Oh it is just so fun to use these things they way they were meant to be used !!!

    Wood was locust from one of two mature trees in our yard. The outer bark is easy to fly through, the darkened heartwood is very hard.

    Christof, what is the model name of the knife that KGD posted? The one that cut up all the tomatos and Magnusson tested. John

    John-

    That's called a Mills Pattern Field/Utility. There's a larger and smaller variant, the one Rick saw that KGD has is the larger one. Mr. Mills has ordered several knives from me up in the PNW and he sent me a rough draft of that pattern, I scultped on it with a grinder some and tuned up the contour and it's a sweet knife :D
