Re: New BOB/Modular INCH

I would get an inner tube and cut a rubber band for each of your yo-yos. You tie the band between the tree limb and a the yo-yo. It will prevent damage and loss if you get a large fish. They act as a shock absorber.

Re: ESEE 3 or 4......?

I had a thread very similar to this a couple weeks ago. I went with the Izula becuase I wanted a smaller knife. When I get around to getting my next ESEE blade, it will be the 4. The thicker blade appeals to me considering I have the Izula already. I love my little neck knife. It sucks that I can't ...

Re: My first attempt at a sheath

I kinda like the rough look of your sheath. The average person wouldn't know there is a $150 knife in there.

You can make templates out of light cardboard to help with the shaping. Keep practicing and you will make some good looking gear.

ESEE-3 or Izula

I am ready to pull the trigger on a new knife but I can't make up my mind between these two. My end use for either knife will be food prep, cleaning game, chopping cut bait and general utility work. It won't be used to chop firewood or stab bad guys. Obviously there is a difference in size and handl...
