Review- 2012 ML extended handle Kephart
« on: April 14, 2012, 03:33:05 PM »
New knife, quick review, shaky camera work by Son O', but anyway it might interest y'all.

I'm posting it first right here on B 'n' B.



Edit:  Son O' and I decided to re-do this vid.   Only B 'n' B members can see it through this link for now. I'll re-post  a better version soon.

Thanks guys, I'm glad you liked the knife and the review.

They represent two firsts for me- My first custom direct from the maker with my input in the design, and my first table top review.

Anyone who has seen my prior reviews knows I like to use my knives, and heretofore they have always been field reviews demonstrating how the blade(s) perform. Aside from the technical glitches with the focus and "creative" camera work by Son O', I think it came out well.

The knife is awesome, but hasn't yet seen much use.  It will soon enough and I'll report back to y'all.

Beautiful knife. I like the heat treat forge finish on the top, gives it a rustic look. What's the grind on it?

That's a sweet knife.  The scales look beautiful and the forged look is awesome.  Very nice knife you have there
