Aaron's work is top notch, fit and finish is spot on. Been using GWKs for years now and probably one of the best price/performance knives you can acquire. I have one of his dark wash blades and I'm a real fan of this finish.
Happy to see you're making up some PSK type of blade offerings again Aaron. Have already chatted with you briefly about your newer Outdoorsman model, any chance you might offer that one in such a manner w/o scales?
Really admire this design and the sheath rig. Just a few quick questions, what is the tang like, do you apply cutouts or are they a full solid tang? Can one order one w/o the jimping and do you work in other steels and if so do you have a ball park idea what the cost would be in other steel...
In search a White River Ursus 45, passed my original off to my son in the service. Below are a few offerings toward one, I see they made a few scandi versions which would be nice as well:
- various LT Wrights (Boat Tail Scandi, Next Gen, Gary Wines)
- Blind Horse Woodsman Pro
Appear to be Bull Maverick models (at least the top and bottom models). John makes a great solid knife, don't believe he had any distinguishing markings between the steel types. I have several of his models and they've all served me well. GLWS!
I still have one of these as well, acquired back in the early to mid 80s. Used it on some of my field exercises when I was at Bragg. Very handy quite useful tool with great construction and materials. Something like this would probably make a hit today with the level and focus on preparedness...
That Camillus is quite a knife, was fortunate to acquire one through the GSA system when I was still in the service prior to one of our deployments down range. I believe they listed for around twice or more so this is a real bargain. GLWS!
Thanks for that feedback, is there a need to hit the very side of the flats at all or does just the sanding of the spine do the trick (such as just a leather strop)? Is there a preferred direction (ie. from the point back to the handle or the opposite direction)?
Received just a little guidance on a procedure/method on removing nicks from the spine of a knife such as ferro rod use. Didn't see much online on this subject. Do any of you have a strategy/method you apply for such a type of fix to clean up the spine?
