    Sheath for magnum fox river

    Just purchased a magnum fox river. Like basket weeve leather. I was wondering if there is bushcraft sheath that knife would fit in. Would like to piggyback it with my mini Canadian. Or maybe kydex. Any body know.

    There is a good possibility if fits in one of the other sheaths fior our large knives.

    Like this one for the Canadian Camp Knife.

    I'll have to try some of them out and let you know.

    I just received my Boone II in stacked leather. Boy what a beauty! I don´t like fullers, and I don´t like bowies, but this one IS pretty! I also ordered the big brother Teddy II also in stacked leather.




    Does somebody have a picture of the Camp/Trail, the Montana Guide II and the Gameskeeper II in comparison? These blades seem to resemble each other, where is the difference?

    the Gameskeeper II and Montana Guide-II are the same knife. One has a guard and the other has no guard and a longer handle.

    The Camp & Trail has the same handle and guard as the Gameskeeper and Gameskeeper-II but has no Choil so it has a fill length cutting edge and is made from thinner steel.

    It is very different than the other two.

    I need to add a couple pics.....Santa was Barkie-heavy at our house this year.

    Like a 2014 Brush Knife and a Bravo EDC heavy....

    I understand that there were a few logistical hoops which were cleared. Tell Skittles that the Brush Knife is fucking SCARY sharp and I love the handle texture. Someone got it exactly right on that handle.

    Heather is sporting that little cut-down Pro Scalpel daily and loves it. I bet that needs a pic as well.

    Never a problem My Friend.

    We are all very happy you are pleased.

    The Kids Loved the fudge you guys sent. All day on Christmas the little ones were very sneaky and thought we did not see them stealing some before dinner.

    We pretended not to notice them - It was Classic.

    I just ordered this Springbok from KSF. I'm sure they won't mind me posting their Youtube :D

    In addition to the Blade length plus the Steel, the size and shape of the handle were the two things that really made up my mind.

    when we were in Escanaba in late SEP I got to finger-fuck a pile of to that point unsullied Brkt's, among them a Springbok. You chose well.

    Today, I received my Aurora LTSS, Teddy II stacked leather and Canadian special LT as well as the Canadian Camp II.

    I have to admit that the LTs are the better Barkies for the small knives. Lighter, good balance and over all gorgeous.

    The Aurora´s handle is my favorite, I really like it.

    The Teddy is one of the best knives I own. It is big, sturdy, but incredibly fast to handle and far lighter than it looks. Pretty impressive blade!


    On my wishlist is a 5.5 or 6 inch Canadian special. And the Canadian special blade with the Aurora handle.

    I have ordered a pigsticker and a bush seax and I´m pretty sure that the seax will be a magnificent blade.

    Mike, do you happen to know when the Blackjack 14-8 will ship?

    I think You will enjoy the Seax. I have been planning it for a number of years.

    The 14-8 will be by the end of February.
