Been a little quiet in here lately....

So I thought I'd post my latest order finished.

Hope to see you guys at chat tonight.

I had a request from an avid hiker/outdoorsman for a general purpose knife for his daily travels in the woods. He gave me a general size range and wanted some sort of dark g-10 for the handle. The knife had to be tough enough to use hard but small enough to want to carry. The guy is a former LEO so I picked colors that I thought might suit a 'tactical' interest, though I hate that word for how it's applied towards knives these days.

Anyway, here it is.

1080+ steel, .178" at the ricasso
8 3/4" overall, 4 1/4" blade
Black g-10 dovetailed bolsters
OD green g-10 scales
Black micarta pins
Tapered tang
False edge, not sharpened
Agressive thumb grip but all sharp edges knocked off

John Doyle

You have nothing to fear but fear itself...........and bears.
