    Right now there are 3 articles being written for upcoming publications in print and online. First is Dan Shechtman's article in if I remember correctly, The American Frontiersman mag. about the Nessmuk knife. Me and three other knifemakers. Next is Kevin Estela's article about the BBT field knife in Recoil mag. and Jim Cobb's article about the Deer Creek knife in his online site www.survivalweekly.com.
    Forgot to add in the future an article by Dwayne Unger about the Kubo. That may be in Recoil.

    I wish American Frontiersman was more available on the shelf here! I have been collecting every issue I can find but have missed the last 2 I believe. I like that magazine; great cover art and the articles are really good to have as coffe table and or cabin material.

    blaid, this is a special project developed and designed by Kevin Estela and his cadre. His group of instructors. That is one of two prototypes. That one is made by me and the other was made with my instruction and help by Dwayne Unger one of Kevin's assistant instructors. It is 17" overall with a 12" blade, .140" thick 80CRV2 steel. These are still in the thought process as far as how they will be made. Most likely mid-tech. There will be a review and article written about it by several people.

    How is the 80crv2 at that blade size and thickness? Or thinness I should say
