Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Hey guys! To continue my road down the rabbit hole of battle blades. I decided to design a full tang, modern version of the infamous M3 trench knife. For these I shortened the blade to 5" for an oal of 9 3/4". The steel is .227" CPM 3V with my custom HT. The handle is Tero Tuf with flared stainless tubes. I did one with smooth scales and one with scalloped texture. Both edges are razor sharp. The sheath is kydex for a wide variety of mounting options. In the last pic, I built a boot knife rig for a good friend who is an alaska state trooper. It is a leather mount that laces into the boot for a low profile extremely secure mount. I call it my AST mount. I am happy I can now offer this to folks and especially law enforcement. Thanks for looking!
