D2 Snubbie from Tim Olt
« on: September 16, 2017, 09:32:52 AM »
my pal Tim Olt up in Michigan sent me this little D2 knife.  He calls it the 'snubbie'.  6 3/4 OAL,  blade is 2 3/4 inches.  This sample has a skeleton handle.  I wrapped it with para cord.  He sent another that I will get Monday, that has butterscotch Micarta scales.  I'm not a big fan of wrapped handles.
So far it's proven a capable knife.  It does very well as a kitchen prep knife.  It cuts cordage, trims vines, carves wood with ease.  I am going to take these out to Wyoming at the end of Sept for my hunt.  I'll be testing it on dead animals.

Tim sent me another D2 snubbie to try out on my trip.  This one has beautiful butterscotch micarta scales.

Great looking blade Sam!

That paracord wrapped snubbie should be a great neck knife. Or as I used to carry a pocket sheath with a small Bark River knife.

I took several of Tim Olt's knives out to Wyoming to process animals.  They all were a huge success.  Sharp, easy to use, ergonomic and efficient.
