Nope...  ;)  I know they make a plastic one, just have to find it.   :think:

please post a link GG when you find it because ive done a study on them over the last few weeks and checked lots of info on the net and not seen any plastic models yet  :tu:

Its possible that I saw a pimped one or a knock-off because I couldn't find one either.  :think:  Maybe I'm losing my mind in my old age!   :D

You are going to hate this John, but the wonderful folks at Cold Steel made a plastic handled version of these called Twistmasters.  I don't know if they are still being produced or not though, but is it possible that's what you are thinking of?

Yep I know, but I think they shouldn't make it... It would make us very jelaous  :D :D :D

Horn would be nice too, but IMHO combination carbon fiber - damascus would be somewhat high tech to traditional knife...  :think: :think:

The folding saw shares the same size Virobloc ring with the No.12 knife. I've been thinking of doing a double blade setup with those. The downside might be handling comfort though.

Here's something that may be of interest using a No.12 - Creating a Folding Bushcraft Knife

The handle you see is only found on the saw...the N0.12 knife handle follows the same pattern as the other knives.
