I've spend my summer building a deck.....
Figures... Just poked my head back into this forum from a short break and I find out the the New Busse I bought will shortly be replaced by a higher performing knife that is Very similar in size...3/8" linen micarta will provide a lot of material to work with, and although I ordered 3/16" steel I will be getting it machined down to around .15- .16", which will provide a handle with a minumum thickness of 1/2"
some general changes to the sketch I posted are; a slightly less 'locked in' handle design, more belly and a wider blade. This will be a great general purpose cutter, and by that I mean you'll be able to cut your food with it, as well as a number of other things.
the blade is around 4.25" and the handle very slightly longer than that
So I assume you've seen this?I've spend my summer building a deck, so the deck jokes have been relentless. I just now realized what I've done here.
Be that as it may, as with all CPKs, the acronym describes the utility around which the intention behind the knife's design orbits. In this case; Defensive Everyday Knife.
Please be aware ^ that's just a design concept...
The FK2 will be a tradesman's knife, a woods knife, a field knife. It's not a weapon and it's not going to look conspicuous. Similar in concept to the original, though a little thinner.
Like the original, it will be a non-nonsense working tool.
Soooooo. DEK. Needs a new name. Too many places have laws against knives as weapons. Can’t use Defensive in the name.
Shiv was much better than Pig Sticker.
