Playing with the flash on my camera as well, sometimes it helps and other times it ruins it. But I left em in there anyway :P

Enjoy Brother!

Congrats Danny, and another Kracaneuner with a redneck blade in 2015, wow.

Looks great Steve.

Is there a Krac who doesn't have a redneck blade?

I beg your pardon sir.  I dove into the depths of the Oklawaha River to retrieve a Redneck custom.  At night.  Solo. With a half-drowned dog.

ok... I'll post more pics of it in use.

I love the scales (and knife).  I just picked up 20 sets of Ironwood burl.  Now I just have to make knives worthy of them.
