    Thumbs up Scrapyard 311, 511, rodent solution, and mud puppy comp. pics

    Hi all I got the 311 today. It is surprisingly comfortable in hand. I am not a huge fan of the handle esp. on the 511. But on this it balances great. I am really happy with this little one.

    [color:"red"] Disclaimer Dan, I still want Mudder handles!!! Please [/color] :CROSSFINGERS:

    But I really like this little blade. And a side not, usually anything under 4 inches I would just take a folder. But this is really a nice feel.

    One of the only exceptions to this is the Esee 3 mil cp. I love this knife for daily carry. It is just a mean knife for its size.

    Here is the Scrapyard 311 with the Esee 3 orange handle, 3 Mil cp, and the Esee Hest fixed blade.



    I like the res c handle better on the Scrapyard 311 but I love the choil on the Esee 3 series. I miss a usable choil.

    Here it is with the ever popular 511. The same handle but a totally different balance.

    The specs for these two are

    (SY) 311 (SR101) = ? oz; .1875" thick; 3.5" blade; 8" oal
    (SY) 511 (SR101) = 6.75 oz; .1875" thick; 5.5" blade; 10" oal




    Here it is with the Scrapyard 511, the 311, the Swamprat Rodent Solution, and the Scrapyard Mud Puppy with [color:"red"]mudder, hint hint Dan [/color]handles

    The Rodent solution specs are as follows

    Rodent Solution (SR101) = 6.4 oz; .1875" thick; 3.5" blade; 8.125" oal



    A side view of the blade profile and handles



    Here is the 311 and the Mudpuppy, with [color:"red"] mudder handles! [/color]


    The Mud puppy specs are as follows

    (SY) Dumpster Mutt CG (SR77) (Saber - small handle) = 9 oz; .27" thick; 5.25" blade; 9.75" oal
    (SY) Dumpster Mutt LE (SR77) (full flat - small handle) = 7.7 oz; .25" thick; 5" blade; 9.5" oal



    Here it is putting a point on a piece of green wood. No problems



    Here is the 311 making a poor fuzz stick,(my fault) with some very hard fat wood.

    The tip is not chipped, but that is some of the coating on the very tip.



    P.s. Mike you did a fantastic job sharpening the 311. It was hair poppin sharp.

    thanks
    :THUMBUP:

    Thanks Tony,

    I never had a problem with the res c tearing up, even hitting it while battoning by accident.

    But micarta is definitely stronger.

    But the res c is so comfy,

    hows the grind on yours? It seems that every scrap yard I get has inconsistent grinds. The flat part of the blade is always one angle, then the belly is way thicker. Makes it stupid hard to sharpen on my sharp maker.

    I think if I end up getting a 311, Ill request that they send me one that wasnt sharpened by Denny. Not sure why, but all the ones Ive gotten so far were from him, same problem on each one.

    Great comparison pics. The 311 is tempting, but I ordered a rodent 4.

    On this one it's perfect. Even through out. Mine was done by mike so maybe request one of his.

    Not yet I don't think it has been released yet. They are open for orders
    now but haven't shipped yet.

    What material are those "mud" handles made from. I'm curious about their wear properties.

    The mudder handles are a res c that's harder than the newer handles it wears tougher and is not as cushioned, but is a nice comfortable grip. The grooves make it almost impossible to slip with blood and such.

    Sar, would you happen to know what model this SRKW is ? I bought it so long ago, I've forgotten.
