Yeah, I haven't either. That would be quite useful in a "if I could only take one thing to a tropical island" sort of way.

Here is the Woodsman PAL Victor #316-S (sawteeth) next to a WWII LC-14-B. They do have a different blade shape and the 316-S has a re-enforcment plate spot welded at the ricasso on one side.

Jim Behring has been selling them for years. Of the trio Eric, I'd say the Bruks will see the most use. Initials JH in the head; makers mark?

Jim lives about 25 miles from me. I have never met him. The 1911 has had a lot of use by me over the last 42 years. I did retire it this year...it turned 100 years old. Picked up a SIG P320 .45 acp to replace it. The Mini hatchet will be my summer campout buddy. I got a leather belt loop with for it, so attached at the hip. The Model 8 goes back in its zipper case.

Yes, those are the initials of the worker that actually made that hatchet. The brochure that comes with the hatchet, has the full names of each worker and their initials.

Steve, That is a really nice looking sheath. Looks much sturdier than the one supplied by GBA.
