    I call this a "chute out". its a combination of a loveless hideout and a chute knife. a couple of firsts for me, all the knives i have made since 2004 were high carbon. this is my first stainless blade. cpm-154 pro heat treated by peters heat treat. also my first time using carbon fiber. i was surprised that it was more dense and harder to work than micarta. it appears grey in the indoor photos but is indeed black. the blade is 4 3/8" long, stainless guard with 2 stainless pins is soldered to the blade. black & white G10 liners. stainless corby bolts and thong tube. leather cross draw sheath. thanks for looking !
