Yes, another new knife.
« on: March 30, 2021, 10:24:06 AM »
A new Olt knife showed up in yesterday's mail. I could not be more pleased!. Tim did a slack belt convex on this one, and the handsome handle is dyed Camel bone, one of my favorite materials. Hair popping sharp, and easily cuts dry Ash, Oak and Hickory wood. The shape is my old design from 2011, but made longer.  The blade is just a smidge over 4 inches.  The handle is 4 3/4 inches, and beefy.  Fits my hand perfectly.

  Now that's a knife (in my best Aussie accent),  simply eye popping.   :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

That is a nice looking knife.  I saw you mention it on Olts thread the other day.  Down the road let us know how that steel is to sharpen.

If a knife performs in the kitchen, that's a good sign that it will perform for 90% of what you need a knife for in camp......the Gospel according to Horace & wolfy. 8)

Nice knife and design.  I may have to play around with that a bit.

Dave,  it's a slightly larger answer to the original I designed back in 2011.  The steel in that one was S30V, and for 10 years, it has been a workhorse.  It has processed a lot of dead animals, and spent a lot of time on the belt as an EDC knife.  Dyed camel bone on that one as well.  Blade was three inches on that one pictured below
