I'm for thinking it's a modified Recluse with a drop point looking at that handle.
Yep, Mist called it. It's a Maroon linen Recluse that I convexed and dropped the point. It is definitely a favorite of mine and I really like the handle to blade ratio now. When I filed the drop point I wasn't expecting the difference in length to be very noticeable but that's exactly what makes it such a great handling knife for me. The full size handle and shorter blade with an almost centered point makes it a doggone woodworking Ferrari. I feel the same about my EDKarda but I always bring a bigger knife out with the EDK. The Recluse can handle all the batoning and fire prep tasks, and the whittling around the fire tasks without feeling like a compromise on either one.
Sweet Mod VA! Turned that Recluse into a orig looking Kep.
VA, That does look super useful and pretty! I'm very impressed! I have several knives I have wanted to modify over the years, but never did. How did you cut it down, what tools did you use? I have reshaped chefs knives when chefs and cooks drop them on the floor, point down. I have used a file, then a stone.
Thanks Willic. It took forever and I'm sure there are much better ways to do it. I layed a file flat on my desk, held the knife by the handle (spine down obviously) and dragged it back towards me, trying to keep everything square. Then did the same with different grits of sandpaper.
Very nice! I love the shape/profile!
Two for Tuesday
That's a sweet pair! I really like how the stainless pins look with the burlap!
That shadetree burlap Andy's been getting might be my new favorite handle material.

A little Halloween osage...
Nice! Hunter & Bushfinger?
Yep... Sorry, They are a Woodsman and Bushfinger... crazy angle on the picture! It sure makes the Bushfinger blade look wide!
Ah, and yes it does. I LOVE my Woodsman!
I definitely have a Bushfinger problem, but the Woodsman is one of the most useful blades in my house!
Though it has only actually made it to the woods a few times, my Woodsman has probably gotten as much use as any other Fiddleback I have.
Not exactly ebony and ivory...but a play on that theme
What kind/size cord it that lanyard? Looks nice!
Cool shot in the snow Mist. Still don't have any here yet.
Here's a two-fer on black micarta: Bushfinger and Runt
