Blind Horse Knives have gotten great reviews on another forum of which I am a member. They seem to have high quality blades at a relatively affordable price. From what I can gather it is an Ohio based company. I'm looking to snag a blade or two from their pathfinder line... Maybe a spear point for the rainy day bag to try them out.

Does anyone here have anything to say about them?

I like this type of knife -Check this out:

I think they are a good value for a semi-custom made in the USA! I don't have one - but I would get one; very hard to find quality blades like this at this price point. If you get one, post a review here.

@Viking

Thanks for that review! Looks like I'm going to be ordering a spear point AND a bushbaby now. Will post pics once I have them.

Finally got the package from BHK! It had been so long I nearly forgot I had ordered anything until I received the shipping notice.

First impressions are very good. The knife has good heft to it and balances well on the index finger when held. The full tang is nearly seamlessly blended into the micarta handles. While the handles are more rough than I was expecting, they grip the hand perfectly... I would compare the feel to unpolished granite. The blade is smooth with a satin finish and scandi grind. It is also very sharp... I have a bald spot on my arm to attest to that fact. I am looking forward to seeing how it holds that edge. The included sheath appears well made with option of dangling or using a belt loop. The retention is a bit excessive at this point, I hope it lets up as it breaks in. I am excited to put this working knife to use!

So Maryland was blessed with the same storm which pounded Ohio. I was on my porch til 1am last night watching an amazing show. I love a good storm. Anyway, this morning my yard looked like it did after hurricane Irene last year, so I spent the day cleaning up outside and put the knife to work. After using it to cut, carve, and hack all day, I only have one complaint, I should have gotten the larger bushcrafter instead of the baby...there might have to be another Blind Horse in my future!

^ Hope your damage wasn't too bad.

We were visiting my nephews in Gaithersburg.

Our hotel - Marriott Courtyard over at the Washingtonian Center - as well as the nearby shopping district lost power for about an hour or so during the storm. The next day was kinda crazy, as splotches of that area were left without power.

My house and yard fared well, but my area was hit pretty badly. We still have extension cords running to the neighbours. Traffic lights are out and roads are still closed. Its gonna be a long cleanup.
