    I was going to say something about how Kephartish that looked. Then I realized that was the point of the Cooper's Creek. Nevermind I shall go back to living under my rock now.

    The weird thing about the Cooper's creek is that I named it after a creek around where I live.
    Csugg told me that he read that Kephart was drowned in a creek of the same name. Pretty wild, I didn't know that until a year or so after I made the first one.

    Thats a bit creepy Iz.

    Hey J how much does that thing weigh compared to a G.R.? Also how deep is the blade (cutting edge to spine)? I think I may be able to put a knife like this to use.

    It's a little heavier and wider than a g.r. Not quite as "whippy" as a g.r. if that makes any sense. I'm not sure how wide the blade is off the top of my head. Wait one and I'll go measure it.

    Cooper's blade is about 1 1/4" wide. G.r. is about 1 1/8" wide.

    Default 2101 old school

    Here are the pics of my 2101 in action yesterday. I had a piece of buckeye in the wood pile that was begging to be turned into a batch of kindling. It was a bit green but it was no problem to batton through.
