    thought I’d drop a couple pics of some fire prep I did tonight with my Orion micro.

    This really is about the perfect size knife to carry and use for these types of tasks. Very sharp and slicey. I’m loving how nice and compact of a package the whole thing is. Light, not small but perfect size to do work with, thin, and yet still hand filling at the same time.

    And some in hand shots:

    I am not a great photographer, but this probably won’t be the last picture I take of myself with this knife. Feathers would be far better with better wood. The sparks this thing shoots are insane.

    I am trying to get up the nerve to start on your blade..... I need to grind it on a day off with a fresh belt so it comes out perfect!

    Perfect or not, the knife will see a heck of a lot of use. My primary use backpack, new to me from HPG, is arriving in a couple days. Should carry lots of tools nicely on various trips! :dblthumb:

    So one of our own was passing through OKC last night and picked up a knife from me that he bought. We talked knives and stuff from about 830 to 9 ish and then at about 1:30 I get this pic when I'm asleep....

    This knife is awesome!! And the sheath fits perfectly in the knife pocket on my 5.11 Taclite Pro's!

    Hopefully it'll see more action tonight!

    Thanks again Chris!

    Just batoned the large hunter thru some tough oak. Did a fine job. After some batoning did a few feathers on a piece of oak. This will take a little getting used to but the knife did just fine. After all that it still shaves hair.

    Nice job Chris!

    The handle is a little different than what I am used to but is strangely comfortable. Definitely pleased with the purchase.

    Keep up the stellar work man. You definitely have a knack/talent for making knives brother!
