    I did a slightly different grind on this knife than normal. It is a near full height sabre grind to .030 and was then convexed to an edge of .015 and then sharpened to a razor's edge. My thoughts are that this edge geometry will give you good edge stability while not leaving you with the shoulder of a flat grind to a convex edge.
    Thanks for looking!

    Specs:
    .156 01
    11.937" OAL
    7.25" blade
    1.5" wide
    Ht by maker in Evenheat oven to 57-58 Rc
    Flat sabre grind to a working convex edge
    Black linen micarta handle over toxic green G10 liners
    Full sized handle is shaped and contoured for no hot spots during use
    Aluminum pins and tube
    Comes with a hand sewn leather sheath by maker

    Asking $160 SOLD. Price includes USPS Priority shipping to all 50 states with delivery confirmation. All others can contact for actual shipping costs.
    I accept Paypal, money order, or check. Paypal preferred to [email protected].

    Thanks for Looking!!

    THAT is the kind of large hand-filling handle that I love!

    Agreed, he makes a fine knife and a scary sharp edge.. I lucked out and got his first chopper he ever made in 3V yesterday.

    I have a massive chopper (18.5 inches and .300 thick 3V), two knives and a machete in the works from Chris. Absolute best value out there, no doubt in my mind. The only thing better than his knives is his customer service. Great knives, great prices, great guy.

    He just finished 2 more 3V Woodsmans for me, in addition to the one I already bought. After your knives are finished I plan on ordering one similar to the one in this post except in 3V and with a blue liner to compliment some other custom/handmade knives I own. For those who don't know...Big Chris knives are the best bang for the buck going...I learned that firsthand.
