    #1!!!
    I have the prototype!!!
    This is my most used knife, In my humble opinion this is the most versatile knife in Iz's line-up.

    I have had 5 Turleys, and while I loved all of them, I have since sold 4 of them...the Green River is the lone standing Turley, that should tell you something.

    Josh I really dig the look of that green micarta with the natural spacers. I may have to modify my order some after I see more pics of these. I'm getting progressively closer and closer to the top of the list. Can't wait.

    It was actually a little more than I should have eaten but I just couldn't stop.

    I've no idea what number it is. If you go to Turleyknives.com it is the second to last one in the Green River gallery if that helps. It is the one that sold at the beginning of March with the coyote/earth G10 handle material. Hope that helps you out some.

    Great pics, bro. Now I'm starving. heh.
    I need to update these threads, I'm not even sure what number that one is. When I get some time I'll get it figured out.

    Thanks for the pics, brutha.

    Turley Time. Straight from the box.

    Well I come home today and found that the mailman had come with a gift, and this is what it was. Green River 26. I will put up some working man pictures of it over the weekend. Thanks Iz for the sweet knife it was well worth the wait.

    Hey Iz,

    I've got a Green River on order from you (around #489 or so, on "The List"). And I'm really stoked!

    I'm writing because I wanted to get your observation as to if your Green River design and geometry has any structural influences from either the historical or modern versions of the 'scramaseax' style knife. The swooping "broken back" drop-down of the scramaseax point ... seems somewhat similar to the Green River's point.

    Thank you (in advance)!

    Craig

    You, Craig.
    Good question. I can say I've never heard of a scramaseax but from what I see it's pretty cool.
    I looked them up but couldn't find a good historical example of one, lots of maker's interpretations which I'm not sure are correct or not.
    To answer your question, the green river was influenced by the Gasconade which was influenced mainly by use. Just figuring out what I liked best in a woods knife honestly.
    Here's a write up I did on the Gasconade and Green river in case you're interested.

    Great question, man.

    Thanks, Iz! And I apologize for mentioning the Scramaseax style knife without posting linked references. I'm glad you found some. Your observation is correct though ... there are a ton of variants of this Viking/Saxon knife archetype. The spear-pointed ones were the "fighters". The wharncliffe-styled ones were the traditional utility version (and the most common type found by archaeologists). About half the seax styles I've seen look like they could handle batoning. The other half of the seax styles seemed way too sloped on the spine for batoning. It's an interesting design. Capable of efficiently cutting long, straight cuts as well as draw cuts ... while also having a strong drilling point.

    I think it's cool to see your Green River's inspiration (based on performance evolution) ending up at least cosmetically similar to an age-old European design that took hundreds of years to perfect. I'm sure if you could time-travel a Green River back to the 9th century Saxons ... they'd totally freak out at the engineering and design genius of your knife. They'd probably think it's a magic weapon from the Gods!

    Thanks for your time and insight!
    Craig

    Hey what's the scale material on Joe's knife? I have mine ordered with the green micarta but as I get closer I have been seriously considering modifying that to the caramel. That light color looks pretty sweet.
