Thank You Timo. But We should sing the praises of the one that gave and those that give, not the receiver or receivers of the gift.

Nah, I think T1M0 HAD IT RIGHT. We should all throw a bunch of steel at Randy <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Wow what a GREAT gesture.
All I can say is sometimes what lifts a man up is the stature of those he runs with.

Wow! I haven't been around as much as I'd like to. Stop by tonight and see this.
That is just incredible. All the best, Randy.

Thanks Dom. Yeah it IS incredible! Wish we had some giant sequoia trees around here, but we don't. Guess a dead dogwood tree will have to fit the bill.

Some observations. She's big, she's bad, she's sharp, she don't take stuff off ANYONE! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbup.gif" alt="" /> But Dan DOES make her nervous. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

I really like that the spine is rounded off. Makes it a lot easier on the hand if you are applying pressure with your thumb or your hand if you are using it as a draw knife. Also a rounded off spine will not tear up your baton like a squared off one will.

The balance point seems to be right about the middle of the choil, so when you choke up and put your finger there, it has a nice easy feeling, a lightness to it. It is quick, even when held in a regular grip although it is sort of blade heavy when in the normal grip.

I like the "Birds head" pommel, that allows you to get a three finger hold that will only increase the chopping ability of the blade.

The talon hole I thought would be just a useless appendage, but upon reflection it is the perfect place to attach a lanyard. Using the forward lanyard position, you can adjust the length so that when you grasp the handle you can actually open your hand and the knife will still remain in your hand. A lanyard vastly increases your safety while chopping, keeping the blade from flying out of your grasp. Some folks like them and some don't. Personally i like them IF I am going to do any chopping where there is a danger of slicing through the material to easily thereby increasing the possibility the blade may come out of your hand. The rear lanyard hole, I'm not sure, but it sure does look cool! Maybe when I get my "Dog" tags I'll attach one there, JUST to remind me that no matter what Jerry does to his blades, Dan will always be right on his A**! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

The handle slabs. What can I say, they're Pumpkin! Plus they are contoured which helps you maintain your grip. And IF I slide my hand slightly forward on the grip, my ring finger fingertip lands smack dab in the middle tube.

Now all that remains is to get her out and all dirty and then see (when she needs it) how she sharpens back up. If she does sharpen up as easily as my Wardog, then ALL the Bussekin choppers need to be made out of INFI!

All things considered, I guess you could say that I am now officially
A HOG, A RAT and A DOG! But not necessarily in that order. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
