Classic firearms got in some sks's so I grabbed in I those. Also picked up a CZ P07 in 9mm. The CZ are awesome pistols kind of along the glock line but a tad more accurate.

Just concluded a trade for a new item to me. I thought I kept up with Bark River production but this one was new to me. 

It's a Gunny model but with the ramp removed so the spine is flat, and this one is jimped (for both thumb traction when choking up and fun with fire steel). The standard has smooth stainless pins...the pins on this one are large mosaic. The scales: presentation grade Desert Ironwood Burl. But he big things for this knife are the steel and the grind. The steel is Crucible CPM 3V. This stuff is new to me, supposedly far tougher and more impact resistant than even A2 and is more stain resistant. The temper brings the hardness in at about 60, which is very high. The blade has a cutting edge of a little under 4". And the grind is a Scandi with convexed edge, making the edge both super sharp and super strong. 

On the carry side, I subbed out the standard sheath for a Bushcraft sheath with firesteel loop. And the traded added a leather dangler adaptor as well. I picked up a 3/8" x 4" firesteel rod as well and will add an Ironwood 'handle' to it. 

All in all, a pretty nice package. 

Sorry about the size of the pic...couldn't adjust it on this tablet.

WOW BH that knife has it all functional shape, amazing Ironwood Burl, Mosaic Pins. I have never worked with nor own a knife built out of CPM 3V but from what i've read from others it's a favorite of many respected bladesmiths. Congrats and thanks for posting. Will be checking them out.

This'll pretty much make you crazy. 

http://www.dlttrading.com/bark-river-gunny-scandi.html

Of course, Jason carries a huge inventory of other Bark River items. The thing about the Gunny Scandi is the heavy blade cross section down close to the edge....where it goes convex. That gives 400% more support behind the edge than if it was a total Scandi grind. There's a Gunny Hunter too. It has a thinner blade profile. One comment I read was that if you lived in softwood areas the Hunter was better...if in the hardwoods, the Scandi made more sense.

So many knives, so little time.

With PAD & Knife AD that is a bad sight to be viewing. Looks like they do top quality work w/top grade materials at reasonable prices.
That Gunny Scandi w/Bighorn sheep scales and the one with Amboynia burl w/mosaic pins are awesome looking knives but that one
you picked up with the Desert Ironwood Burl has some of the most amazing grain i have seen. I have a passion for anything functional
be it tradional bows, guns, knives, hawks, pipes etc. with burled wood grain.They also have Bob Loveless classic shaped knives that are
hard to resist. I'll do my wife a favor and try and stay off that site lol! .

It's funny you mentioned that Amboynia Burl knife. I had picked that one as my number one with the Elk Antler as number two...but when I mentioned that I wished one of them had the jimping on the spine Jason sent me a photo of the Ironwood Burl piece...and that was that. 

BTW: the knife and leather arrived yesterday afternoon. One of the problems I always have is that production knives, made for the masses, always have a handle too short for my really large hands. It's one of the reasons I started making my own knives. That plus a good friend from this site encouraged me in a number of ways. Now THIS knife's handle is also just a mite short of ideal, but the span across my palm JUST fits into the contour front to back. But when I hold it in a 'slicing position' it sort of slides forward a bit and my little finger is behind the rear end...but it works. The contours of the handle on this knife (which I think are standard to the Gunny line in general, are so well for designed that even with extended usage I have little fear of any hot spots forming. And when I choke up very slightly t put my thumb on the jimping my hand fits into the contour once again. I've got bigger Bark River blades (including a Golock in A2 steel which is one of my all time favorite beast blades...the triple tempered cryo treated A2 they do at Bark River is the toughest, edge holdingest steel I've ever used...but the CPM 3V they use for these is supposed to beat it by far) but the size of this knife, so much like a Nordic style Pukko - but with contoured handle seems to really be the perfect do everything design. I can't wait to start using it.

Picked up my Springfield Armory 1911 MilSpec in Stainless Steel, late last week...have not had an opportunity to take it out to the range, yet, however.

Should also have a couple new holsters comin' my way shortly...

It's nice to have a place that's pretty local (Winthrop Holsters in Lakewood, OH) so it arrives the next day or if I want I could go pick it up I guess, but it's worth the $5 to ship it since it's about a 45 min drive.

Also, grabbed some ammo today.

Added a S&W 9mm, A Tula Mosin Nagant, a Swiss K31, and another Mosin Nagant. Also picked up one of the Archangel stocks for the Mosin Nagants, they are pretty slick looking and supposedly they fit awesome.
