    Thumbs up Model 5 z-sere thread

    If you got pics you're more than welcome to put them up here. Or if you have questions about this model or just want to talk about it, that's ok too.
    Mostly this will be a running thread on the knives of this model I've made for people to use as a reference for a knife they have or are looking to buy on the secondary market.
    Info on the model here: http://www.turleyknives.com/apps/blo...pecialist-bolo and here http://www.turleyknives.com/apps/blo...odel-22-z-sere

    Those look REALLY good. I went to the Turley link and was eye-balling the Mississippi Black...that is one that I like a lot.

    It was my personal knife for a couple years, I loved that thing. I had to sell it recently so I re-handled it with the handle it has on it now, the old one was a little thin.
    I'm glad you like it and it does my heart good to see it used so much. Thanks for the pics.
