    A Little "Snub Lore" Model


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Hey folks,
    My niece has been accepted into a ranger program here in Ontario. She will have 2-3 yrs of schooling with a lot of fieldwork ahead of her. One of her suggested personal wares was a small fixed blade. I couldn't bear the thought of her buying a Wally World special, so I quick wipped up a small user for her. I don't have pics of the one I gifted her but here is its twin that ships out to a customer, come Monday.

    Snub Lore
    1095
    1/8" thick
    6 3/4" OA length
    3 1/4" blade
    3 1/2" handle
    Tapered tang
    Handle is leather backed, hemp wrapped, epoxy soaked
    Hand stitched sheath, wax dipped.

    Thanks for looking.

    Hi Rick,
    Why did you opt for absence of a guard?

    Many folks prefer a knife without a guard. It is just another option.


    Thanks for the great replies!

    That's a great bushcrafter there! Your niece will have the best blades in her entire class I'm sure. Good luck to her.

    To me this is the same as driving with no seat belt. Hopefully she wont need it.
    Thanks,

    I like it! All knives don't have to have guards, David.

    It's all about perspective. I might look at guards like never taking the training wheels off your bike.

    It is odd for some... but tell that to a culture like the Saami who rely on working blades for everyday life. Few of them have guards.

    Snub Lore?

    I had a model called the "Bushlore"(My tribute to the popular Woodlore). It eventually shortened to the "Lore". I tried to straighten a blank once and broke the tip off. It went from a 5.5" to a 3" blade with a full handle. In the spirit of make lemonade from lemons, I finished off the blade and called it the "Snub Lore". I get more orders for that blade than almost any other I make.

    This one is more proprtional with the small handle... maybe it should be called "Lil' Lore".

    Here is the original Snub Lore from back in 2008...

    They have obviously never had their hands slip up on the blade and give them a nasty gash now, have they?

    Nice looking blade regardless.
