    Those look REALLY good. I went to the Turley link and was eye-balling the Mississippi Black...that is one that I like a lot.

    Great pics, rainforest.
    Your knife is number 3.
    It was my personal knife for a couple years, I loved that thing. I had to sell it recently so I re-handled it with the handle it has on it now, the old one was a little thin.
    I'm glad you like it and it does my heart good to see it used so much. Thanks for the pics.

    Thanks Iz, and for confirming the model number. I can't tell ya how stoked I am to have a knife that you actually used for a few years...gives it all the more character and sentimental value :)

    Here is the Sere only spoon. Burned out and used a rock to smooth the inside.

    Lets just say it would be allot quicker to do this with a small knife:) Still had fun and it was a good lesson on using a big knife for small tasks.

    Of all the great Turkey knives this one I think is my favorite. Definitely one for the someday list. I am not even a big knife guy usually. The Air force gets all the cool gear.

    Lol. Think of all the coin you will save on plates.

    Now knowledge and cookware weigh nothing.
