I would guess a Bennett Meek blade. These are similar to a Braca 4 but with re-enforced area around the attachment of the blade into the shaft.

Tim uses a Braca.

To be precise, he said he uses a "Braca 4 MIN extra light with the regular adjustable shaft"

Here's a nice one taken at the finish of the Dragon Run where you can see the back of Tim's blade...

In the interview with Tim at the end of Rambo's Dragon Run video you can see the blade is branded with both Braca and Bennet stickers. It looks like a Braca, so I'm not sure why he'd place a Bennet sticker on the blade as well. Presumably something to do with sponsorship.

The big guy has had a sponsorship with Bennett for many years. Greg Bennett is now selling the Braca range. Previously Tim used one of Chad Meek's B4s (not sure what size exactly), when Bennett distributed the Meek range.

Tim's a solid bloke, so it's interesting to see him use a small blade like a Braca 4 Min. That will have a few guys thinking! :)
