    I got this as an around camp, do anything sorta knife. My only concern is the size, at 10" the blade isn't short. This thing looks like it can chop through anything.

    Rope Cutting Competitions have become a spectator sport and are showing up more and more at knife shows around the country. The only two men to win an American Bladesmith (ABS) World Cutting Championship are James Crowell and Reggie Barker. Jim Crowell is an Arkansas Bladesmith who's hand forged knives are eagerly sought by both collectors and users. Reggie Barker, who is from Louisiana, has won cutting championships all over the country, including both the 2004 and 2005 ABS World Championship Cutting Competitions. These two men, uniquely fitted to design a cutting competition level knife, have joined together to design this knife for Browning®.

    The heavy, full tang camp knife has a 5" handle of laminated Micarta® with a 10" high carbon tool steel blade at 57-59 Rc. Blade measures 1-7/8" wide at its widest point and is ground from 1/4" stock. Includes a wrist lanyard and top-grain leather sheath. Measures 15" tip to butt and weighs 17.4 oz

    Do you have one? I've seen various pictures online (that one included) and seen a video of one in use and it's not a bad looking knife imo. It's certainly not the best looking knife in the world, but I wouldn't call it ugly :dunno:

    It'd look a helluva a lot better if it didn't say BROWNING across it like a 1967 Camaro with an Edelbrock sticker.

    True. But in all the reviews/tests I've seen, it out performs knives like the full size ka-bar (pictured above I believe). And that's what I'm buying it for. Not the logo on the side. When it shows up in a few days I'll let you know if the writing is as dark as you have pictured, or light like the picture I posted :dunno:

    I couldn't help myself and ordered one of these as well, since that thing is so large. I wanted something a bit more practical :)

    I ordered it from http://www.dlttradingcompany.com Free ground shipping, and no tax for me, plus nice prices for the bark river blades. This one came to $165 shipped.

    Looks like it was the last stacked leather with silver spacers they had :noes:
