    You're welcome, man. Actually Doggiecareman deserves the thanks, it's his knife that he's passing around.
    There's a #25 coming up in the next batch if you follow the "next batch" thread.
    Here's hoping I don't mess it up . heh.
    Thanks again, my friend. It was a pleasure meeting you and Whitetail this weekend.

    I was sorting out some old digital media I have and came accross these. It looks like #1 has been pretty well covered but I figure why not a few more from way back there... It's a dandy blade for sure.











    My old camera really struggled with that much reflective surface on a sunny day... Anyhow, like I said, it's a dandy...

    Thanks for the great photos. It certainly is a winner. It still surprises me that more people don't pick it. Maybe once more people have midsized option covered (for example, Solider River or Green River) the Mississippi will grow in popularity.

    From my limited experience with this knife this wouldve been the perfect knife for the SERE contract Iz had for a while it certainly is a jack of all trades blade without being to big or awkward to carry perfect for military or SAR or anybody in that line of work

    That is a good way to put it. If I was going to pick a "survival" knife from the Turley line this would be it. It is still small enough to pull off typical bushcraft tasks, but it has that over-built quality and larger size that is often associated with a survival knife.

    My opinion isnt worth anything to anyone except me but I think that grinding mistake of #1 should be incorporated into the design. Probably makes it a tad harder to sharpen but that slight recurve really sets it off to my eye.

    You are most welcome. If I make it out the Ohio Meet this next weekend it will get more use by anyone interested. Looking promising for me to get there.
