    Always comes up with these knives.

    "Mors Kochanski has also suggested drilling a shearing hole near the tip of the blade where you insert a nail or pin to act as a pivot point. When set up properly the knife is used in a shearing action similar to a flat bed paper cutter for cutting up multiples of whatever one might need such as a bunch of toggles for buttons, tarp tie downs etc. or for processing large quantities of food items." ....

    You'd have to be pretty hardcore to pull off neck carry with a Skookum.

    Mors is an Animal! lol

    Wow. I want one! I just got my second Skookum after waiting 2.5 YEARS. I sold my first one over 3 years ago and got back on Rod's list soon after. This add on is fabulous. I'll have to contact Brian after he is done with the next knife challenge.

    Wow. That is very well done! Great job Brian!
    Congrats Ivan..haven't found a grip yet that isn't comfortable with it;). It is THE field blade for me. :). Rod sure knew how to make a fantastic entrance into the "realm of the maker"...and such a fitting tribute to Mors. If may ask, what steel did you choose?

    First off, that's a great looking dangler...I'll have to PM you Brian!


    My first SBT is in O1 and I ordered one in A2 about 2+years ago. Rod contacted me about a month ago and I know have an SBT in Afghanistan:D It's not a really a "combat" bushcraft blade, but I've been able to toy with it on some scrap lumber. I'll have to give Brian's dangler a shot (that just doesn't sound right....:eek:)

    That looks great!

    I've been using knotted paracord to form a dangler loop on mine, but your's is way better!

    I'd been using P cord too.

    This idea popped up when I was talking to Ivan and it seems to work great!

    its been working great! this is the best way IMO to carry this blade

    That is a great set up for IMHO the KING of the bushcraft arena. I have yet to hold a knife, even knives I have designed, that could top it. Something is really special about that handle..it just fits my hand in any position. I really like the continuous curved cutting edge as well.
    I ordered 2 years ago, right after the big write up in one of the knife periodicals. I received them 9 months later back then. I have since sold one.(stupid move) but I still have one. I carry it in a standard pouch sheath with firesteel loop, that I bought from Britain. They include this particular sheath with the Wright and Sons bushcrafter. I wish I still had the original sheath...it snapped like Kydex!
    My knife is in A2, and it is stupid sharp with ease, and holds its edge for a great while.

    Great set up.
