I have a question about these Bear Grylls knives.
What is the purpose of the square indents in the middle of the slabs?
Decoration? Finger grip? I can't get my mind around it. Don't they cause hot spots?

My understanding (opinion) is that they're to lock the handle into the hand (ring and middle finger) so the knife won't slip out as easily. In my limited experience, they really work and you barely feel them. Red has LOTS of experience with these knives, and I've never heard him complain about the indents (he is VERY picky about his knives).
What's that smell?

This is mine. Have a few grail knives a ray mears Alan woods woodlore an Alan woods custom wood lore a rm swc woodlore Ben Orford woodlander and a bunch others but to me this tops them all. It's a Paul kirtley raven armoury pk-1 in rwl34. Every single aspect of this knife serves a purpose. I have never ever seen or held anything like it. The rwl34 strops up so sharp you barely hear it cut paper it's so clean. Just terribly hard to get one.

Can't see your pictures Roland.

I did click over to Kirtleys site to find out more about the knife. I am intrigued by it! It is now on my wish list.

Thanks for mentioning it!

I will take some pictures and show you what they are for. They do not cause hot spots, in fact you don't even notice them on your palm side when holding the knife. Basically, your middle finger locks into the handle, and after you get used to feeling for it, you can determine the orientation of the knife in the dark as well, just by feeling for the groove.  The pictures always make them look so deep, but in reality its only 1/16", and that is at the deepest part.

Still some cleaning up to do... but you get the idea. First time trying a stick tang like this. Learned a lot :)

It's made by Jeremy Horton, and it's called The Anniversary  knife, of what I don't know....
It's 10", tip to scales, A2 steel, chisel ground, with Timascus scales, and almost 1/2" THICK- a sharpened pry bar in the truest sense.

Lgm, if you don't like chisel grinds, the Horton would NOT be a good knife for you.

Neither would this:
