    Best use for these is in a Bug-Out-Bag or Survival Kit. The Scandi grind can stand up to heavier tasks than a flat grind could and the PSK version only weighs 2 ounces!

    That's less than most folks' folding knives in their pockets right now.

    Is there a set thickness for the scales? Going through the pics on your site, some look thicker than others. At first I thought maybe it was a difference of liners vs no liners. But looking at the Burgundy Micarta with liners (beautiful by the way) and the Natural Micarta with liners above, the one pictured in this thread looks thicker. Just curious.

    That's the only thickness I could get the burgundy micarta in - so that's why I added the liners to it. My personal preference is 3/8" with this knife...since I do quite a bit of contouring, I need 'room' for shaping.

    I've heard nothing but good things about the Woodlore, and several people have recommended them to me. One question: any possibility of moving the jimping up on these like on the new bushcrafters?

    I have said it before and I will say it again: This knife is the essence of utility + sexiness combined. I just love mine. Easily my most used knife.

    @Mag - the jimping is already moved forward enough to allow room for your thumb on this one. :thumbup:

    lightleak - glad to hear you like it!

    Not yet - but I should soon. I plan on buying some more steel for this soon.
    :thumbup:

    It can be ordered via my website - just put PSK in the comments area.

    Thanks!

    DAN! YOU ARE KILLING ME!

    I am going to have to take out a mortgage on my house if you don't stop! I want a Scout, Pikal, Ness, and now a PSK!!!

    Ok, what steels are your PSKs going to come in?

    I am just going to have to stop looking at your knives.

    Is the spine left square for striking a fire steel etc?

    Thanks,

    Jeff - the PSKs are only 1095. Thanks for the kind words. I'll be happy to set you up. ;)

    Nick - yes. All spines of all knives are left square for striking a firesteel. But you'll find that you get better results by using the thumbgrooves - specifically designed for this very feature.

    Great! PSK is ordered. After that I'm sure I'll need one with scales :).
