Man that looks great. Love the carving on the back, bet it fits in the hand real nice. I like how the design trails off to the side, because it breaks the formal pattern and seems almost like it would give some more traction where the thumb might rest.

Beautiful knife. Reminds me of autumn camping, skinning hares, filleting brook trout, and roasting them over the fire. The sheath could use a little breaking in, I think, to match the look of the knife, but that will come with time, I'm sure.
