    Here is a knife I just finished up in my in my B.D.U. format(Battle, Duty, Utility). They all feature an integral guard and glass breaker pommel.
    This one is my scout model. It combines the heavy duty features of a service knife, with the versatile shape of drop point.
    The handle is OD green micarta with orange G10 liners. The OAL is 9.75", with a 4.5" blade of .214" 5160 carbon steel.
    Let me know what you guys think.

    Quick question..do those grips really feel good? And are they practical?

    UI love the look, but I shy away from them because I'm not sure of the grip.

    Beautiful knife though, it looks work ready.

    I personally like the feel of these grips.
    Where they really shine is when using gloves, no worries about it slipping out of your hand.
    Under normal use you really shouldn't have any problems with hot spots while using it.
    IMHO.

    Hello,

    I love the look of it and the blade shape is awesome! Id prefer a larger choil though.

    Have a good one,

    great looking knife... solid design. more "skull crusher" than i prefer, but it's a solid design and looks well thought out.
