    It’s a variant of Russell’s Tioga. An outstanding knife.

    Good question. I don't know what it is either LOL!
    It's actually a prototype: Has a Tioga handle, ... but the blade shape has a little more drop and less belly. Its a cross between a Tioga, a Bushcraft Classic, and Bearpen... A "Bushy Bear Toe" maybe?

    And here it is.

    It's the large Strebig, 4-inch blade size version. At bottom is the distal taper of the full tang. I love the blade profile. The brute de forge markings define the spine on 4mm stock going down to a full flat grind. Thin enough behind the edge to make a very sharp slicer. Stout enough for heavy work. It was the sharpest edge I have ever received. Fit and finish are exemplary.

    For about the past 10 years my girls have got me a summer sausage and cheese package for Christmas. A couple days later we eat it together and it’s become a favorite tradition of mine. This year Russell’s Tellico did the honors.

    I purchased my first Cohutta knife at the beginning of 2018. Since then, Russell has graduated from the apprentice program and has continued to create awesome knives. Wishing him many more years of success!

    A few Cohutta pics from 2018.....

    I've been waiting a while for the sun to show itself here in Georgia so I could get some pictures of this beauty in that light. This is @Cohutta's Bushcraft Classic in Tasmanian Blackwood, and when I first held this knife, the handle's thickness really stood out to me. It's much rounder and thicker than most every other knife I own. My initial impression was that it was too much to hold on to. Then I used it, and that impression changed completely. I was shocked at how comfortable the handle felt during actual use. If you like thicker handles on your knives (and even if you don't), I recommend giving the Bushcraft Classic a try.

    I had to make a new tent stake to replace a broken one used to tie down a tarp. After this, I fire hardened the point (just because).
