    Didn't get a chance to use it much yet, but I am hoping to get out today.

    Hi DCP,

    First off, thank you for the photo!

    That must be #5. I can barely make out the thin blue liners under the green canvas scales. How do you like her? Have you had a chance to use her yet?

    Yeah it's #5, I got it used this week so I haven't had a chance to get out with it yet. I think I am going to like it though. I like the woodlore style knives, but not a fan of scandi grinds so this is the ideal setup.

    I too favor Woodlore style knives. I actually own a number of Ray Mears/Alan Wood Woodlore knives and a custom Woodlore from Alan as well. All are with the scandi-grind and I get along with them quite well. Of late though, I have become quite intrigued with the virtues of the convex edge. So I think I agree with you that Iz's take on a Woodlore style knife with a convex edge (aka Niangua) is the ideal set-up indeed!

    If you feel inclined, I would be interested to hear your thoughts after you use her a bit.

    Default #8

    Here is #8 pictured between a Rooklore and Backwoods woodlore. It's a sweet balanced knife and really like how it feels in the hand. She's purdy in my eyes!

    It's kind of neat to see how the Niangua looks compared to other woodlore clones. Great comparison pic, man. Thanks.
