Got this one in the mail today from Yorkshire UK.   Steel is O1.  Scales are Bocote Wood.  Blade length is 5 inches.  OAL length is 9 3/4 inches.   Grinds are perfect.  I like it.

I don't know, but to my eye this version bears little resemblance to the original design of the Colclesser/Kephart.  It's a great looking design, but to me it looks like a blend of Kephart's and Nessmuk's best design features, rather than a pure Kephart clone.  :shrug:

I apologize if it sounded like I was making a disparaging comment....it was not my intention! :coffee:
