This knife is designed to serve as a general-purpose outdoorsman’s knife. The pattern is inspired by the work of the world-renowned survival instructor Mors Kochanski. It is my most versatile knife design for the field. The blade profile has a large, gentle sweep along the belly to work well in food preparation and cleaning game animals. The anatomical handle geometry is optimized to be comfortable and secure in a saber, modified saber, reverse, and choked up grip for users who wear a Mens Large glove size or similar sized hand. The butt of the handle is rounded to allow for a comfortable area to strike with the palm of your hand when stabbing or creating split wood fires. The size and contours of the handle should allow a loose, yet powerful, grip with no sharp corners or hot spots to reduce hand fatigue over extended periods of heavy use. This blade has a 9″ overall length and 4 1/8″ blade length.
