With all the recent discussion on the iconic Kephart knife and having been lucky enough to handle an original, I just had to try and make my own version. I tried to incorporate some of the same handle contours in mine as found on the original. I went a little larger on mine in the length and handle thickness but it feels great in my paw I used .200 thick 5160 for the blade stock and drilled out the tang for weight reduction. Overall this one is 10 1/16in. The blade is 5 1/16in tip to handle. I used some old black canvas micarta for the scales and brass pins. This should make a great belt knife and will be easy on the belt at 10oz. I will try to get some more pics up this coming weekend but for now this oily pic will have to do.
