Thought I'd share my experience with my recent commission purchase for a small deer blade
The one I have (#47) is made for McMillan caping blade by diamond blades to mcmillans spec using D2 steel hardened to RC 65-68 it has a 2.5 inch blade and micarta handle with mosaic pins, fine leather sheath with removeable nylon insert
I have now given it a pretty arduous and good test on Munties, Roe and rabbits and it has sailed through everything I have thrown at including atlas and leg joints on these little deer I can't find a better blade for the job
sharpening all I have had to do is show it a strop and that Polish is all it needs for over a dozen small deer I am really impressed with it.
anyone else got one and given it some welly
7 weeks from order to delivery from the states is I reckon the best it gets
it is a brilliant ultra sharp blade with a serrated top edge for use as a belly and neck opener all in all a tidy piece of kit.
would like to hear if any other guys use em ?
