    Well, thanks to this thread, I realized that have no idea where my BB13 is.
    <grumbles>
    Guess I know what I'm doing later tonight...

    I have been going through that on a daily basis since my recent return to the forum. Today it was one pretty nice BAIII that I knew I had; but had not found and I ended up finding two when I was sure I only had one. Hope you have the same luck :cool:. Next are the SH Badgers that are someplace around here.

    Spirch, did you have any commentary or conclusion from that exercise in the first video?

    How do you like the raider? Yours is a stripped blade right? Looks good.

    OK - so it was right where I left it...I just missed it the first two times I looked.

    One nice thing about the desert sage coating is that it blends in with the steel as it is worn down/off.

    Sounds like you’re on the best treasure hunt, made even better by the fact that you know the treasure is there! Love the pics.

    I have recorded this video around October 10, 2018 so I will try to go by memory...

    the HOGB8 is amazing because it's heavy and wide and it make a nice wedge, it split thing easily. The handle is fantastic, i would put the resC on all of my knife if i could.

    the SFNO is ok, it does the job and no wow factor, i keep it close to my wood stove to split into smaller pieces some larger kindling. The handle is not as "fun" as the one on the HOGB8

    the 1311 is amazing for the job but i think I still prefer the HOGB8

    the BB13 is kind of awkward compared to the other one, too heavy at the tip so I don't think it would be my first choice for battoning

    My SR101 RMD after a couple of weeks in the field and not being able to keep her dry... she polished up even more beautiful after the scars.

    It's a hell of a chopper. The added mass from the thick blade really helps with that. I like that the handle scales are pretty rough. Provides some nice grip. I really enjoy the looks of it too. The coffin handle feels very substantial in the hand. You could use it as a hammer too if need be. I did strip it and I buffed it a little with some scotch Brite pads. I also etched the logo. Totally lucked out with how it looked underneath. I highly recommend it.

    I love the way that coated Busse knives show their use - that BMe2 looks great. Love that model.
    I've got a couple users I'll post some pictures of soon, but I'm excited to go beat on some new additions this summer.

    I've got one Rodent 6. Un-modified, and still coated. Such as it is. The coating is worn pretty smooth. I've debated over and over whether I want to strip it, but haven't. Yet.
    I probably will not remove the upper guard on mine. I like the looks with the upper guard. Plus, I've gotten used to it, and it doesn't really hinder usage. For me. I know it does for a lot of people.
