    Yep, Rainy, I have. One of the improvements made since the first version came out was to 'square up' the spine so that you can use a flint or a ferro rod to create sparks (and, hopefully, fire). The original version had the spine 'melted' so it was apparently difficult to create sparks. I can tell you that the improved knife that I have does not have that problem.

    One wee little gripe: although the sheath has a loop to carry a ferro rod none comes with it. For the kind of money this knife costs I would have thought that Benchmade could have sprung for the rod. Go figure.

    Heh, seems silly not to include the ferro rod. Such be a tiny cost for Benchmade, but nontheless a irritation for buyers :p

    I contemplated getting this over waiting for a Esee 4 in stainless steel, but settled for waiting for the Esee. Youre making me rething this AGAIN... :devil:

    Hand-forged high- carbon steel Finnish hunting knife as used by the Innuit. Since new it's only been sharpened using metal polish on leather or paper

    Nice! I've never seen one with a black handle before, it looks good on the knife.
