    Comes with the blade length of your choice = 3", 3.5", 4", 4.5" or 5"

    Handle is 4.5" with contouring and palm swell. One corby pin, one lanyard tube.
    Handles are the same size regardless of blade length.
    Handle fronts are tapered to allow easy entry/exit in sheaths.
    Synthetic handles will be heavily bead-blasted for extra grip, even when wet.
    Ironwood handles will be handrubbed to 600 grit and hand-polished with Briwax.



    Pricing:

    $235 for 3.5"

    Done - thanks!



    That would be fine. Pricing would depend on blade length.

    3"=120
    3.5"=130
    4"=140
    4.5"=150
    5"=160

    These would be fully finished blanks - essentially skeletonized knives. Add $35 for a simple kydex sheath.

    Let me know.

    Dan,
    Do all the leather sheaths have the loops for horizontal belt carry like the 4" pictured above? Also, are the blade length measurements from the end of the scales, or from the beginning of the sharpened area? Please put me down in the interested list for now. Probably will turn into official list soon, but have to appease she who shares my house, and may remove parts of my anatomy if I buy yet another knife so soon.

    Done :thumbup:

    Yes - all have horizontal straps.
    blade length is actual cutting edge as well as tip-to-handle measurement and it guaranteed to be *right under* the specified length. Designed that way from the start. :thumbup:




    Done :thumbup:


    Thanks!

    No. I just had 2 people that I was holding a spot for - wanted to make sure they got a chance - in case they were slow with their email.

    Still open.
