    Thumbs up Model 3 Mississippi River 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.

    Very nice pics, guys. I'm in love with the SR, but this model is really growing on me. I might have to get in line for a second one.

    Iz, does the regular version of this have a recurve or is that only as you put it a grinding mistake on #1.

    I'd love to see a side shot of the regular version, if anyone has one.
