  1. Either one sounds good to me. If the "design by committee" gets selected, I would venture a suggestion for forming the committee, rather than ask the BOD to set specs. Start a thread with a sign up sheet and have Dr, King draw 4 names out of the sorting hat. That's the committee to draft the specs.

  2. A eucalyptus handled PH EDC with 1095 blade for a local hunter An ULU for a repeat customer with walnut on the 1084 blade. Was fub setting the tangs into the handle rather than splitting the wood and doing it that way with a much nicer finish. A Light Hunter with canvas micarta having a 180 grit finish (for grip) on the scandi ground 1095 blade and a Bushcraft Hunter with the same canvase micarta handle on the scandi ground 1095 blade. And a new design that I am really pleased with. A Bird and Trout with Tasmanian Blackwood over

  3. What about have a specified starting dimensions? Everyone starts with the same size material and does the best they can in whatever style they choose.

  4. My bush craft hunter is the result of a group of hunters testing the best of what they could find available from both commercial and some custom offerings and testing them in controlled backyard situations to whittle the least satisfactory out of contention. Then the remaining were tested under US field and hunting conditions to find a suitable knife and sheath for the domestic and international hunter who may have to do more than the usual when asked to. All failed in one way or another from sheath pier ING to hotspots to handle overall dimensions and even to some spects of the blade from sha

  5. Don't be shy Cory. The whole point of these KITHs is to force yourself outside of your comfort zone and try something you've never done before. It's not necessarily about the blade itself, but more about the journey behind it. My work doesn't hold a candle to some of these guys either, but nobody's ever complained......

  7. That looks great! - (would be better if you had dropped the tip a bit ) we should totally have a forum design by committee knife and all make one to show and tell I would have a go at making that if others were up for a make it / swap it challenge !

  8. Highlights from 2020 were definitely an Ironwood Puuko and a commissioned Karambit I did in the later months. The Puukko, being my first hidden tang and multi-piece handle construction, was a wringer of learning, but so so rewarding to see it all come together. I also loved getting the opportunity to work on something that felt a little more "tactical" which was the Karambit a local LEO commissioned. First time working with 80CrV2, but definitely won't be the last! Also, sharpening these guys is a bugger, lol! (sorry for the horrid pictures)

  9. For some reason I really enjoy these threads. I think it stems from this being my favorite part of a build, I can design anything I want on paper, but making it real is the hard part . I think I also enjoy them because I feel I am still in this stage, trying to make aesthetically pleasing, but mostly FUNCTIONAL knives. I agree with John N: So, I apologize in advance, but I was sitting here reading what others were saying and wanting to share what I’ve learned... So, I started drawing. Here is my version: Take this however you want, and
