This knife is mainly intended to be carried on hunting trips, as well as on hiking or bushcrafting tours. The goal was to make a knife that can be cleaned easily, requires little maintenance and is a durable, handy workhorse.
I don’t work with stainless steels so I gave the 80CrV2 blade a forced patina. Protects against rust and discoloration isn’t an issue. Plus I quite like the look. For the grip scales I used G10, not a material I enjoy working with but the right choice here. I feels really nice in hand but I will always prefer wood given the option.
Blade length is 10.5cm, overall length is 22cm. Blade thickness is 5mm, with a full flat grind. The tang is skeletonized for a pleasant balance.
The excellent kydex sheath was made by Sven Kinast at www.messerdepot.de. The neon-green liner is a nice visual touch as well as making finding the knife in the dark much easier.
