I've been out of the country behind a Company firewall or would have commented IMMEDIATELY on this.
All I can say is that I'm saddened that more posters here that I thought were knife savvy haven't recognized how special this knife is.
Maybe one has to have used one of Phil's knives to understand...?
Anyway...CONGRATS on a knife from a maker with performance upon what the "popular" posters can't even IMAGINE, and from one whom Rick Menefee calls "one of the best makers on the planet."
My knives from Phil have done more critters, in shorter time, than ALL of the knives put togeter from some of the most prolific poseurs here.
Looking forward to some "working" pics and the braggadocio that comes with owing such a treasure...again "CONGRATS", and WELL DONE!!!
