    Outstanding as always Scott!!!!
     
  3. Really good design. That should've smacked us in the head. Stanley came up with a real winner. Scott, keep that template, I have a feeling this design will be in demand. UNK combined with a Deer Creek is a great idea!

    Looks great Scott!

    For future interest in this knife here is a cut and paste of my original idea.

    I call it the CFK or Compromise Field Knife.

    It has the UNK-style blade to excel at gutting, skinning, and butchering.

    The blade is tall, thick, and long enough to excel at bushcraft tasks.

    4.25" Blade with a 4" cutting edge.

    4.5" handle with an additional 3/8" exposed tang.

    3/16" thick and 1.5" tall.

    This one is S-7 steel.

    I really like this design. Dual purpose as stan intended. Great for hunting and general woods use. Alittle large to EDC but I can't think of anything it wouldn't be good for.

    Hey stan, if you like this one, wait until you see the bolo. It's going to be a beast in 1/4" S7. Not much you won't be able to do with it. I left the handle a tad wider then normal which I think you will appreciate.

    Did someone say wide handle?

    :D

    Thanks Scott!

    In the tradition of the Mother Tusker aka Mo-T since this Kevin Estela Bolo is beefed up to 1/4" I will call it the Mo-Bo!
