    Taken on last weeks trip to France.
    Camped at the town of Corcieux in les Vosges.
    Beautiful surroundings there.
    Lots of batonning there too :)
    Used my Esee 6 a lot, but also my BK7 came in use a lot.

    Just got this one last week. If the rain holds off, I'll be taking it out this weekend for a proper break in.

    Great knife, @Kevo. The 14 is probably my favorite blade of all time...small enough to be worn very discreetly on the belt (you don't even know its there) or on the neck but big enough that it doesnt feel like your working with a "small knife" (the ones that compromise usability for portability)...Handle scales will transform it from a great knife to one of your favorites....the zytel factory scales are very inexpensive ($15 or less) and they come with 2 colors (orange and black) or if you can swing it get the TKC scales...tons of colors and killer ergos

    It's the knife I probably have the most photos of because it's with me EVERY time I'm outdoors.

    @OutdoorsFamilyMan I'm definitely liking it so far! The scales on yours look fantastic though.

    I've found the handle wrap to be pretty uncomfortable, so I'll be ordering the zytel scales to hold me over for a while. My original plan was to play around enough to get comfortable with it, then lash it to a pack strap and let it live there. I may have to buy another though, because this one has started to turn into my "everytime I'm outside" knife.

    If you already like it that much without the zytel, you better order another one right now with the scales order...then you will have one knife for each set of scales....and those zytel scales are great scales and will do better than just holding you over....the scales on mine are glow scales from a guy who no longer makes them that I won in a contest....I had no plans to upgrade to any other scales, didnt feel the need.

    I prefer to think of it as I'm saving you money by steering you toward what works (for me anyways lol) and what I've learned over the years of slowly accumulating gear on a tight budget
