just looked at the stats, and 6.5oz makes 'em a heavy folder, I am glad they met your expectations mate, nothing worse than when a new knife doesn't.I love your enthusiasm. I often order two at a time too, to justify the cost of postage (the justification works for me ).
Just checked the mail, and my two real steel controls are here. Geez they're big and heavy . The tall handle is as comfortable as I thought - more so. I think you would like these Wave man. For me they're just big tough knives. I imagine you would call them beaters. Although the CF / S35VN version is over $300. Oh, I like it. Great pass through. Lock up on both looks like bang on 50% - I'd be happier with less. Slab of G10 one side, stainless steel the other. I think if you were after something like a cold steel AD10, you'd be quite happy with one of these (or two )
Yes, they're brutes. I'm still playing with them . The weight is a novelty. Although it's 5.26 oz for the model I have, and 5.2 for the cf / s35vn. I have a couple of knives that aren't great, but the prices I pay I don't lose any sleep over it. I've made one big purchase (for me), the bradford guardian 3; it's as good as they say, and I received a great example. I just don't have much need for a fixed blade, so haven't used it much.just looked at the stats, and 6.5oz makes 'em a heavy folder, I am glad they met your expectations mate, nothing worse than when a new knife doesn't.
Oh man, that link doesn't work unless you're a member . I want to see the pretty knife.just dropped the hammer on this, Ironbark knives custom, Spotted Gum Bushcrafter, 1084 HC 100mm blade with file work
my second Ironbark custom.
Purchased from Tentworld and at the price of $5.90 I could not be bothered making one. Being made in Australia as well I am happy to pay.And from where does one acquire a crochead? Purchased, or fashioned from a wire coat hanger?
Can you still buy mozzie coils? I haven't seen them for a couple of years. They don't seem to be used in SE Asia any more either.Purchased from Tentworld and at the price of $5.90 I could not be bothered making one. Being made in Australia as well I am happy to pay.
Crochead Mosquito Coil Holder - Crochead - The Crochead Mosquito Coil Holder is the best mozzie coil holding solution yet, designed to stand or even hang a mozzie coil wherever it is needed.www.tentworld.com.au
Not waiting but arrived, a crochead?
What is a crochead you ask, it’s an Australian made gizmo for holding the ubiquitous mozzie coil. Much better than the little pressed metal holders because as you will know the coils often break, this can hold the smallest segment of coil.
There will be one or two in my bushcraft gear forever more.

Also holds a full coil comfortably.
