    Thumbs up Model 9 Arghandab 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 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.

    Kerri, how does a blade like that on the smaller side feel with it being 3/16 inch thick? I know indestructible, but does it feel right?

    Yeah I like it its very comfortable to use, if i were to use it to compliment my belt knife instead of basically as a back up id probably opt for a thinner blade

    Being used to a 3/16 blade from Iz probably makes it feel very familiar, ya think?

    Kerri you had that knife built with the intention of it being a last ditch knife. After reading your reply that popped in my noggin.
