    Not heavy use but should handle field dressing ok.

    Nice, Im keen to have a crack at a slip joint. Bit of faffing around for sure. Did you use a washer?

    I found this knife when cleaning out a shed.
    I can't make out the language written on the blade,looks Finnish maybe?

    Nice wee knife with cruciform blade,some one took some time making that.

    nearly finished this Bob Engnath design. Pretty thin behind a wicked edge in 14c28n and some flex in the end half of blade. Be good for processing animals or fish I would think.
    G10 scales quite nice to work with. Don't forget the respirator mask though.

    Nice man, Grinds getting better every knife! Look nice and thin. IMO behind edge geometry is the single most overlooked thing in knife design scrutiny

    Thanks, I think everyone I know has a hunting knife now so probably make some kitchen sets next.
    Using a clamp/guide to keep a clean ricasso is a must for me as the tracking on my linisher is a bit temperamental. I probably get more mileage out of my belts than is advisable. They aren't cheap.

    Just stunning Viper.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    So out of the lock down I had time to design and get feedback from forum members on a small knife series which I thought would be handy.
    The overwhelming favorite was a little drop point style hunting / utility knife which has being named the " Krait" ( gotta keep that snake theme going )
    This knife also featured in the designs and it was totally different to anything else but I thought it would work and could be useful and appeal to the right hunter.
    Turns out it was exactly what a member wanted and hit the go button.

    Here's the result, D2 steel, full tang and full grind. Black / blue micarta handles with sky blue and black G10 liners and running carbon pins.
    Blade is 85 - 90mm and feels very natural in the hand.
    Another bloody awesome forum member to deal with , more like making knives for mates than customers.
