    The Gasconade is going to be my first choice. The thought process is different when I am trying to pick out two knives instead of one.

    This website reminds me of trying to pick the 2nd knife to go with the Gasconade.

    It depends on which way the wind is blowing this day.

    Haha. You still have a couple three weeks to decide, brother.
    That's a cool map by the way.

    I had a hell of a time deciding my first two orders through Iz. I chose the 17 Coopers Creek and the 01 Blackwater.
    I could not take my eyes off either one so I went with both on two different orders.

    The Blackwater reminded me of my uncles hunting blade from when I was young that I knew I had to get one on the list.
    Same for the Coopers Creek, it looked like a perfect interpretation of kepharts design and I know that handle shape works well for me, can not go wrong there.

    I think you are on the right path with your choices, the Gasconade is a fine lookin blade.

    I'll get it down
    When I get my Turley


    The 3 Bears:

    "Beartooth"- Antique bone G-10 Dogwood. Full height grind. It slices, it dices, it makes Julienne fries. My special occasion belt knife. Church, weddings, funerals and when asked to sing at the opry.

    "Bearclaw"- Coyote/earth Gasconade. Varied height grind. Mount it to the hood of the pickup and it will point you to the woods. This will be my woods knife.

    I kept them both simple. No lanyard holes or pommel plates. No smackie my Turlies.

    Here is the 3rd bear:

    "Baby Bear"- When I gather wood for a fire, she will bring me sticks and pine cones. She is 15 months old now.

    Epilogue: (fancy word)

    The knives are here. These were the right two knives for me.

    Gasconade & Dogwood. YKMV (your knives may vary)

    They fit my hand perfectly. I now can do a two-fisted monkey stomp.

    Now it's time to get on another list for the sheaths.

    In case you didn't know, Iz makes a really fine knife.

    It was well worth the wait.

    Thanks Iz.
