Now I need kydex. I wonder when the Esee kydex will arrive for the camplores?
I should have kept mine.
Probably have to get one of the new black oxide ones when the come out.
Im glad you sold it.
Actually that one was bent and had a broken tip from throwing it at a brick wall.
This combo looks like it would be great. Love my jg3 but don't own a junglas I or II my condor boomslang is similar in size to the junglas I. Reckon a couple of inches shorter would be spot on. Hmm may have to start saving up for a II
Dog proof. The dings in the scales are from my wifes dog trying to tear em up when we were gone.
"my wifes dog" are you joking me?
Only animals @Strigidae has are for food, pets belong to the misses.
Nope. Her dog wont be kept in a kennel so we keep him out when we leave. As penance he destroys something. No kidding. Usually we can get him to mess up amazon boxes etc. sometimes not.
Im thankful he didnt swallow the knife. Pain aint a thing for him.
Just purchased my first Camp Lore. With what do you treat your sheaths, if at all?
Wetformed with water and then used leather dye and leather sheen.
I second this bit I use bees wax, not sure what leather sheen is, is it like Afro sheen.
Its a sealant for the dye.
I went to Cabela's today because reasons, and I finally got to put my paws on a jg3. A few thoughts:
I didn't realize just how sharp the 90* spine was.
Stonewashed finish looked and felt great in the hand, almost satin-y.
The handle shape is great. I could feel the curvature, but not in a weird karambit sort of way. Purposeful.
Palm/finger swell is a nice touch. Makes for a different sort of grip.
Handle slabs were thin. Didn't seem to fit the feel of the palm/finger swell. It filled the hand one direction but not the other.
I'll say it this way: it's on my short list, but I would either need a steep discount or a decent trade into one.
TKC has the JG3 on sale for $85.95
James is quite an amazing craftsman and everything I’ve ever seen him make, its made with purpose. I think it goes without saying that ESEE sees that.
James makes purposeful things from his immense amount of experience.
That’s just what the JG3 is.
Here’s a mini nessmuk he made for me and a custom that I designed that he made. Even though it’s not an actual JG3, I think it brings some value to my previous statement.....and it’s the only pics I had on my phone.
P.S. He also made the spoon...
ESEE did a fantastic job of capturing the detail and personal touch that James adds to his knives.
The instant i saw TKC I thought you were about to say they started selling scales for it
I really want to like this knife, but the height near the choil is so skinny it makes me suspect I will hate it. Had a similar issue with TKC Izula II scales. They thinned down the scales at the choil (albeit thickness, not height) and it ruined the user experience for me.
