sometimes, i'm hard to understand.
I'd like to get into this!
First of all I have to say: I have always been an admirer of JK's work, but just never had the cash to afford a custom made knife.
Since I got into knifemaking myself (have made 3 blades so far...) JK's designs have always been inspiring for me. The simple and clear lines are something I really dig.
This design started out with a knife I recently built, (link to a pic) because the shape handles great and it's a perfect user. Then I tried to manipulate the form of the blade and handle into something I'd like to call an "hommage" to JK.
Here it is:
Total length: 7 3/4"
Handle length: 4 1/4"
Blade length: 3 1/2"
thanks LL! i started trying to think of a design....and i asked myself, "Self...what knife would i use a lot?" Steak knife. Bam. I'm definitely a carnivore.P.S. Your steak knife design makes me want to eat steak NOW.
and murphys law....welcome and hello to you. nice design. handle looks comfy.
I love the style of JK knives, hopefully I'm going to have a custom made soon and I'll be keeping you in mind. For this contest, I'm going with an EDC/utility with a 3" blade, 7" OAL. I came up with this design completely on my own, so I apologize if it looks similar to any other entries. I'm not copying you, I promise!
I'm liking Lightleak and Murphys designs. Maybe I should have gone for an EDC size...
handle - 4.75"
blade - 4"

Jk knives - your design or his.
I've never tried designing a knife before. It is harder than it looks!
Here is my attempt.
Overall Length 7.4"
Overall Height 1.5"(If the knife can't be angled like it is in my pic for measurements, let me know and I can modify my design. Don't want to break the rules.)
Blade height is 1"
Blade length 3.5"
Blade thickness 1/8"
