3 Cocobola C3 knives
« on: April 05, 2012, 09:04:24 PM »
G'day everyone

I finally got around to taking a pic of the 3 Cocobola knives I have from Chris at C3.

All have proven to be superb users.  :thumbsup:


From top to bottom...Skinner, SouthernCross and the Colorado Mountain Scandi



And a pic of them in their sheaths (please note: the skinner at the top is in a custom made dangler sheath and the other two are in the functional sheaths supplied by Chris).


Thanks for looking.


Kind regards
Mick

Nice collection! Looks like you'll have a lot of the bases covered with the different blade shapes and handle configurations. And, that's an attractive choice of handle material. :thumbsup:

G'day PW

Thanks.

Your right about having a lot of bases covered. All three obviously have different design criteria, that covers most of the knife use I do.

I particularily like the darker Cocobola that Chris has been able to get to handle these three.

I suppose it comes as no suprise that my favourite outdoors knife is the middle one.  ;D


Kind regards
Mick

Very nice!  Is the middle one of your design, hence the name?

G'day Danno

The middle one was inspired by a 100+ year old traditional Swedish design.

Both Chris & I collaborated on a number of design modifications that delivered a knife that is significantly different in use, that has suited me perfectly.  :thumbsup:

Thus the name.  ;D

Those are sweet. I need to get a good skinner instead of using other knives not made for it.

G'day Red

Sorry it's taken so long to respond, but I have essentially been away from a computer since last Saturday morning (14th April).

Yeah, I'm very satisfied with my choices.  :thumbsup:

IMO, do it.  ;D

It has become my one blade.

To help you decide, here's a pic from this afternoon's fishing trip.
