Wilderness Knives

Recommended Posts

Hello all, it has been a while since I have posted anything getting married can make one busy :D But I have been developing a new production line I wanted to show and get opinions on. I will be posting all of the new knives and versions on this thread so as to not inundate you guys with pictures of knives that are too similar. When I was initially designing this knife I wanted it to be tough and efficient, but still small enough for everyday use, so no more than a 4 inch blade. Ultimately I plan on having a 4 inch blade model, 3 inch blade model, and an ultra light version of each. The first prototype I made out of W2 and it came out with a nice wicked little hamon and I have to say it is a mean little knife. With all that being said here is the knife and I'd love to hear what you all thing of it.




Steel: W2

Blade thickness: 3/16 tapering to 1/8 on the tang

Blade length: 4 1/8 inches

Blade width: 1 1/4 inch

Overall length: 8 3/4 inches

Weight: 5.2 ounces

Handle material: Desert Ironwood Burl with leather spacers

Pins: Stainless steel rod and tubing

Do the red spacers only go part way up the handle? Very clean work.

I like everything about the knife except the blade profile. To me it's too wide with the wrong curve. I'm certainly not anywhere near the knife maker the likes of who we have on this forum including yourself so I don't feel qualified to do any critiqueing. I'm only going by the visual attraction of the blade to myself. If it were mine I would cut it down as shown on the annotated picture. Other than my take on it, it's still a beautiful knife.
