    Default Wilderness Knives

    Hello all, it has been a while since I have posted anything getting married can make one busy But I have been developing a new production line I wanted to show and get opinions on. I will be posting all of the new knives and versions on this thread so as to not inundate you guys with pictures of knives that are too similar. When I was initially designing this knife I wanted it to be tough and efficient, but still small enough for everyday use, so no more than a 4 inch blade. Ultimately I plan on having a 4 inch blade model, 3 inch blade model, and an ultra light version of each. The first prototype I made out of W2 and it came out with a nice wicked little hamon and I have to say it is a mean little knife. With all that being said here is the knife and I'd love to hear what you all thing of it.

    Spec:

    Steel: W2
    Blade thickness: 3/16 tapering to 1/8 on the tang
    Blade length: 4 1/8 inches
    Blade width: 1 1/4 inch
    Overall length: 8 3/4 inches
    Weight: 5.2 ounces
    Handle material: Desert Ironwood Burl with leather spacers
    Pins: Stainless steel rod and tubing

    That is a very handsome and useful looking knife. I believe it would take care of almost all hunting and camping jobs out in the woods and mountains.

    I think any woodsman would like to have a knife such as that. Great knife.

    That's a great looking knife.

    It looks like a good blade. I wish I had one like that.

    That is a beautiful knife, but I have one suggestion. That little point on the bottom of the blade right in front of the handle looks painful. Why wouldn't you put a nice radiused curve there. That is right where a person might have a finger when cutting very tough material and that point would hurt!

    Hey guys sorry I haven't responded, I was away for the past week or so. I have been working with this knife a fair bit over the past couple weeks and will be rounding the spine more and making some of the lines less aggressive for better comfort. More pictures to come soon. Thanks for your patience!
