    Horrible looking knife, not for me at all!

















    .














    Just kidding. Knife is awesome and works as intended.....to put it diplomatically.

    It did exactly that with virtually no resistance at all. Took me by surprise, that the knife went in like through warm butter.

    You created the right tool for the job.

    I went for the area just behind the front leg. From above and at a slight downward angle. Worked the knife around a bit. Worked just as intended. Sliced clean through the heart on one pig.

    Initially I wanted an "S" shaped traditional looking guard, but after seeing this and using it, I prefer this guard by far.

    Not only does the guard work 100%, it also places the knife in a class of its own....along with the rest of the features of this Lon Humhrey Bowie.

    I can bear witness to the fact, that there is no slipping of the handle in use at all. Neither does it twist or turn when pig sticking.

    A sub-hilt would have been one way of making sure of a secure grip, but Im not keen on the sub-hilt design.

    Lon and I talked it over and went for a Micarta grip and a hollow ground guard. I wrap a finger over the guard and rest a finger on the choil.

    I wanted it that way, because there might be a lot of sweat, blood etc when sticking a pig...and there was a lot of that!

    Knife/handle design worked as intended though. No slippage at all, though goves/hands were soaked in blood.

    I would not go back and change a single thing on the knife....even if i could.

    Pig Stickin

    Always been interested in fair fight hunting. Love dogs too much to put them in that kind of danger, even if it is what they were bred for. Thinking about using a net with weights on the corners or something. Input would be welcome as I've never done it but want to :madaddy:
