    I took #3 out for a walk today to see how it felt in my hand. Did some split wood fire prep with big leaf maple. Sorry Solocanoe, this is a tough little knife that I intend to hold onto. Nice work Mr. Turley.

    Number 1















    Definitely my most used knife ever. It has lived a hard life.
    Prior preparation prevents piss-poor performance.

    Great pics hunter and slice.
    Hunter, in pic five of homeslice's post is what your knife used to look like...before I did stupid stuff like beat on the pommel without a pommel plate.
    You listening Homeslice?
    I see that pic of the hedge stump with your Gasconade driven in half way. Just sayin'.
    Heh.
    Glad you guys like them, it really is nice to hear.

    You can see how this pattern has changed since those first prototypes.
    My newer Gasconade is on top in this pic and Slicer's is on the bottom. Slicer's is the same specs as hunter's since it was one of the prototypes.

    Them there are some fine looking blades, yes sir, some fine looking blades.
    Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

    The Gasconade River is one of my favorite Turley models, but this particular one has to be my favorite produced so far

    One of the best looking Turleys of all time. It's like a tuxedo made of steel.
