I really like the idea of joint knife with Bud Nealy and <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> on the order of Bud's new "AT", Appalachian Trail, or the Pocono. I'm looking at a flat ground fixed blade of 3 to 3 7/8 in long with CPM440V; not the ATS 34 Bud usually uses. I am into outdoor utility and hunting knives; not martial arts, so some forumites can address that side of Bud's work better than I.
I would also like to see Bud's outdoor Dual-Lock sheath or the Moran Tek-Lok sheath system.
Jeffrey, thanks for initiating this thread. Even though this idea may go nowhere; it is only thru this type of out of the box thinking that keeps <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> so competitive.
