Prototype SOLD
« on: July 05, 2015, 04:18:03 PM »
Hey guys,

With everything that has been going on lately, I completely forgot about this knife. It has been sitting in my knife bucket since our last camp in April, and it is time for it to go to a new home :)

I did not make the sheath, but it does come with one, and it has a dangler. It is natural color leather, and a pretty good sheath. I really don't have time right now to make one of mine for it, but if an interested party INSISTS, I will quote a price for the knife and one of my sheaths.

I changed this one a little from when I first posted it, I thinned the handles some, as while those exaggerated contours look good in pictures, they just weren't comfortable to me. I adjusted the handles before camp in April, and used this knife the whole time I was there. It did a LOT of carving between me and everyone else there, and no one complained about any hot spots. I personally used it for about 3 hours straight, and had no issues at all.

That said, here it is:

O1 Tool Steel
1/8" Thick Blade
Scandi Grind
Brass Loveless Bolts and tube
Desert Ironwood Burl Scales
Double stack red/black liners
9" OAL
4.5" Handle
4.5" blade
4.25" cutting edge

Very comfortable knife. The price is SOLD Shipped CONUS

Had a chance to use it at our Buck Lake camp.  Great knife - you'll love it.
