    I love it personally. At first I didn’t think it would replace my PR4 but after a few weeks I can’t be without it lol

    I’m liking it!

    I also can’t believe how great of a thrower it is!

    Trimmed a little of the bulbousness off the nose, added a dangler, and took it to Hawk Mountain, Pa. for a hiking trip. Light, slicey, prepped both firewood and dinner. Couldn’t ask for more. Great knife.

    I’ve been at it again!

    The new sheath works an absolute treat!

    This is the prototype but a shortened strap will be an inch further up the handle on the next batch!

    Thanks gents! Still finding my way round the knife, the PR4 is putting up a fight but this sheath will make the JG5 feel a lot more accessible!

    Also, had this one cut down an inch or so to allow for a more positive one handed draw.

    I’ve big hands and the original fit only allowed 2 fingers contact on the handle. The extra space now allows 3 or 4 finger contact when drawing one-handed.

    Gonna give this sheath away I reckon on the social medias! All it’ll cost you to enter is a decent photo of your JG5 doing stuff! Get snapping!

    All that extra content will keep @shaneadams90 happy too! Everyone is a winner!

    Been using the JG5 almost exclusively for kitchen food prep over the last month. Due to its shape and how thin the stock is, I can honestly say I like it just as well in the kitchen as in the outdoors. IMG_6576.JPG

    This is the sharpest knife i have ever owned. It is so great. I showed it to a rabbit in the woods, the rabbit unzipped its skin like a coat and just gave it to me. WOW. I am terrible at sharpening knives, i will probably never get it back to thia sharp.
