Trout and small game. A Mate of mine has one and says it's great for wallaby and rabbit. Should land it here in Oz for about AU$110.

Cheers,
Mark.

The B&T pattern's always been my favorite, and this one's no different.
A quick look at their web-site makes me think it's good product made by someone that actually cares about his product.
Refreshing in todays world of cheap disposable crap.
Wish they sold em in the US, but I'm afraid the shipping from NZ would be a deal breaker for me.

Enjoy the new blade.

Yea,,, I did a search this morning on bladeforum and the general consensus was that only the low end "Peasant" knife is available in the US.
A quick search on e-bay confirms that.
Guess that tells ya what he thinks of the US eah? LOL

Last thing I need to do right now is spend money on a new knife anyway.

Post a pic when ya her get though. I'd be interested to see the sheath too. (If it comes with one).

Yes Charlie it comes with a leather sheath. Do yourself a favour and get one of the peasant knives. I'm on my fourth on now and it's the one that I make sure is in my pocket when I'm going into the bush. The last three end up in the possesion of friends who tried them and kept them. :)

Cheers,
Mark.

Mark I just noticed your thread, sorry I'm late to the party my friend. This looks like a great knife and very well made. Is this one stainless steel? The handle looks like it's very tough and the blade shape reminds me of an old Russell Green River Knife Works blade I saw once, very good design indeed. I'm very interested to hear more about this one. Charlie and I are both bird and trout knife fans I'm afraid...smile.

G'day Jesse. It's high carbon Scandinavian tool steel, but not too hard to look after, I already have one of their peasant knives and the steel is tough as and will take an incredible edge.

Bad news is, I recieved an email from the supplier stating that thay are out of stock and it is on back order and I can expect delivery in 1 to 3 weeks. Also, thay are no longer available with the Diamondwood handle. Don't know if i can live with a plastic handle. It's my opinion that a knife like that deserves a handle of wood, bone, antler or leather. Maybe I'm too much of a traditionalist or just hard to please, but I know what I like.

Cheers,
Mark.

Howdy Mark,

I agree on the handle material although micarta has made a believer out of me, that's tough stuff and you get a real good grip on it even with bloody hands. I too prefer the traditional handle materials, I feel your pain brother....grin. I'll bet you'll forget all about it when your knife comes and you start to use it...smile. Best of luck to you my friend.
