    Anyone interested in a flat ground version?


    [​IMG]


    For the most part, it will still be the same knife and will fit in the same sheath.

    But now there will be a return to the FULLY CONTOURED handle with palm swell and tapered fronts.

    Another change is only 1 pin up front and a lanyard tube in back.

    Last but not least is the jimping. I've gone back and forth on this many times and the best jimping by far is what I now have on my EDC and MUCK knives. So, this one gets it too.





    Here's a link to a pic of the standard Bushcraft knife for reference:

    http://www.kosterknives.com/Bushcraft.jpg

    Overall = 8.5"
    Blade = 4", flat grind, stone-tumbled finish :eek:
    Handle = 4.5", contoured/palm swell





    I am using CPM 3V steel that is 0.150" thick. Will cut like a laser and with 3V there's no worry about strength...even flat ground at that thickness. :cool:

    It would be ground like the BushMaster - all the way to the top.


    It will also have the same ultra-durable stone-tumbled finish that the BushMaster has. :cool:


    I already have enough steel to cut 35 blanks.

    If you are Interested, please post here and email me your info. I'll add you to the Interested List.

    If you are definitely down for one, send in a $50 deposit as well and I'll put you on the Official List.

    :thumbup:


    Standard Pricing = $190
    (includes sheath - your choice of leather or kydex)

    I am limiting this run to the following material upgrades:

    Natural Canvas Micarta (included in base price)
    Black Canvas Micarta (included in base price)
    Green Canvas Micarta (adds $10)
    Orange G10 (adds $20)
    Blue G10 (adds $20)

    Thanks!

    Yes - fully contoured from 3/8" handle slabs. They will be a little thinner than the 2009 version with the contouring, but thicker than the 1st Gen Bushcraft.
