    It doesn't matter if you have followed James' career since he started or are one of those people who buys one or several just because your neighbor did...have no fear, post 'em here:

    Used this blade at field survival intensive. Love at first use. If it was missing from camp it was in my hands.

    Very nice. Wish I would have tested it some at the house.

    Wow, I totally forgot to come back and post some of these. So to make up for that...

    [​IMG]

    This is my neck knife, a slight modification of James' regular one, on the day I got it.

    I carry it everyday, and it gets a ton of use in the field and around the house.

    Here it is today in need of a little elbow grease.

    I also have one of James' "firebirds". Its a great multi-use tool for using as a flint striker, bearing block, and even starting a notch in your hearth. The brass striker with jute wrapped around it and the spark extender are both ideas from Mr. Gibson's fire kit.

    Last but not least I got this little PSK knife from James several years ago. It stays in my PSK belt pouch.

    How's that for making for my lack on contributions to this thread?

    I have a few more items on order from the Knob Creek Forge at the moment.

    I updated my post above. It's always a treat to speak with JG and I'm proud to call him a friend and use tools he's crafted. I'm looking forward to Advanced Bushcraft in March.

    James is an unbelievable knife maker. I’ve got two knives for my sons, one mini nessmuk and a custom I designed that he made. I’ll get mine together and put them up tomorrow.
