Thanks, Francisco. The Master Hunter is my favorite all around blade, and is the reason I did not order an FTF knife.
I HATE the rubber handles, though I have a few Carbon V (LTC, Gurkha, Mini Gurkha, etc) Kukris that I left the rubber on. I just removed all the checkering and they are easier to use. Plus the rubber dampens some of the shock when hacking wood.
I re-made some of the Master Hunters and SRK's for friend's, as well. The one with the Black Paper Micarta looks WAY better in person than it does in my lousy pics.
I still have about a half a dozen CS knives in boxes waiting for new handles. It just takes time, but once I get started it is a lot of fun.
