    Don’t see these mentioned much around here. I don’t frequent other forums so maybe they are discussed more elsewhere. Any experience with them as they look very nice?

    I not so long ago picked one up off of the exchange. The fit and finish was top notch. I haven't had it long enough to give more feedback.

    I have seen several others folks posting them in the various pic threads on BCUSA.

    Sure is, but that still leaves the big question if the blade is any good?

    Sharp, excellent grind work. Fit and finish is top level. Nice designs.

    Nice knives.

    Anybody else used one? I’m interested in a Mapmaker or Minotaur. They look like well thought out designs. Good heat treat from Peters. Awesome handle materials.

    I have the Mapmaker. Outstanding fit and finish. Super comfortable handle in all grips.

    We don’t mention them because we can’t say it.

    Now that’s a knife.

    How ‘bout them Buck Knives. Yeah, you betcha. Good knife. Easy to say.
