    Default I finally got one... an AS Woodsman overview, compare, and review

    Here is my AS woodsman. Its 5/32 thick with scandivex. Handle is 4/5 size. I wanted to show pics of it next to some other knives to compare sizes. I have not had the chance to really use it other than some fine curls. This thing is heavy duty and has a nice weight to it. I am pretty sure it can baton without ant troubles. The only complaint I have with it is that its not balanced, but I kind of like the extra weight in the my hand.

    This is one, hot looking blade. Very beautiful design. Enjoy it and thabk you for sharing!

    Congrats, that is a nice one. I really like AS textured Micarta handles, they are super comfortable and practical.

    I wonder if the balance will change any on the new blades that they had water jet cut. I noticed they were skeletonized. I know they drilled out their tangs in the past so probably not a big difference but I'm curious since that is the only thing I would change in this model, just take a bit of weight out of the handle. Like you said doesn't bother me now. I love mine.
