    That's not too bad actually, here's the Gnome in hand for comparison.

    As you can see it barely leaves room for two fingers where it looks like you can get almost 3 on the BLJ.

    Thanks for the pic [​IMG]

    I have not read anything about the origins of the BLJ, but it appears to be a specialty blade. Does anyone have any input?

    Not personally, but perhaps this review by CarpScot can tell you what you want to know?

    Unless you'll live forever it will at one point, not sure if that's much consolation though :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I really don't have a need for a knife like that but I keep looking at it too.

    Perhaps we should have Flint take his pictures down to avoid further temptation ;)

    No, I got it with the Arete. Never really considered a Woodlore. I do have a custom bushcrafter made in UK, a Ben Orford Woodlander coming my way this week though.
    I'll post up as soon as I get her.

    Doublebarrel, did you force that patina on purpose or through use? How? It looks good!

    It looks a little different now, but at the time of pic it is mostly forced patina.
    I protected blade with Chapstick and only soaked spalted area with vinegar. I went another round but changed to fingernail polish to protect the blade. I let it soak too long and polish started to peel and vinegar made little channels in the paint, which in turn made the little swirly design.
