    Forum member awestib said it looked like a Mora on steroids, when I posted it before. When I made it, I was in fact mimicking the Moras with the wooden handles, to some extent. Also looks a little like an Entrek Forester.

    Not a true scandi: it has a narrow, convexed secondary bevel.

    Materials: A2, brass tubing, West G-Flex Epoxy, dymondwood, olive canvas micarta.
    Heat treated by Paul Bos, 60 R.C.
    Overall Length: 8"
    Tip - To - Handle: 4"
    Cutting Edge: 3 3/4"
    Thickness: 1/8"


    The handle scales are carefully laid up with G Flex. The finish is a mixture of beeswax, 3-in-1 oil, and paraffin wax.

    Includes the two sheaths pictured. Both are treated with Sno-Seal.

    Please do not expect this knife to be awesomely perfect: The plunge lines are a little mismatched, and the spines are not as smooth as the flats.


    Since these pictures were taken, I have trimmed off the excess epoxy from in front of the scales.

    The wax finish wore a little on the left handle side, from sliding in and out of the sheath:

    $85 shipped in USA via Priority Shipping. Add $6 for Canada. No other destinations, please. I prefer paypal. With checks, I have to wait until it clears the bank before shipping. With Money Order, I have to wait until I cash it.

    Buyer: please tell me what color you want your lanyard to be, and if you don't want a lanyard, that's fine too.
