    What is the blade length on your medium bushcraft scandi? Your knives really do look like useful art work. I mean that in a really nice way.

    Folks, a reminder of something I found quite by accident a few months ago. BA has a photo album on his profile page that shows about 25-35 of his completed knives he has made. It's very interesting to see the above blades here, and then with all the different scales/handles/slabs/grips (gun guy again) types of material he puts on them.
    Well worth the time to check them out.
    Be safe.

    Bill do you ever do anything like a roach belly or trade knife? I would love to see you crank out one like the long trail. The lines on this knife are just outstanding. The blade shape and handle contours are just amazing, although I would almost like to see more thickness in the handle near the tang.

    Yes it does look kind of like it. I think the top of the blade on the long trail drops down to the tip a bit more though and I really like the exposed metal on the tang on the long trail. It gives good purchase and protection against sliding up on the blade. That sure is a good looking knife!
