Slim little hunter/utility in W2 and Premium Koa...
This is the first of two small knives that will be going to a good friend and one of my best repeat collectors. The two knives will not match or be a set in any way. One is ground and full tang, the other is forged and hidden tang. This one is the ground, full tang one.
This is a nice, slim and light hunter/daily carry. I've been selling and taking orders for quite a few of these lately.
Ground from W2, clay quenched and etched
6 3/4" overall, 3 1/8" tip to scales with just over 2 7/8" sharp, .140" thick right at the ricasso with sharp distal taper
Blade height is 7/8" tall from spine to edge right in front of the ricasso, handle width at the thickest part (butt end) right about 7/16"
Fileworked thumb grip
Heavily rounded spine
Tapered tang, tapered down to .030"
Premium stabilized Koa handle with TONS of shimmer that I can't capture in pics
German silver pins
Fileworked butt end
All comments, discussion and opinions welcome.
You have nothing to fear but fear itself...........and bears.
Your attention to detail is amazing as always! That what's sets exquisite knives apart from nice knives. Thanks for posting. Very inspiring!
