A timeless knife design For any Woodsman

This knife was a custom ordered straight back design
with a light patina aged blade.

The blade length is about 4 3/4" long with a nice belly,
this is sharpened from tip to hilt.

The handle is beautiful grained ironwood with brass pins
and rear lanyard hole.

The sheath was hand stitched and antiqued in a dark brown.

Thank you

  1. Matt,
    Thanks for posting my finished knife on your blog! I'm absolutely thrilled with the design and quality of your work.
    The ironwood handle was a great choice... it's beautiful and the ideal material for the handle. I definitely like the light patina for the blade, and it's a design that will prove ideal for the widest variety of applications, from hinting and fishing to bushcraft and woods-wandering.
    I am extremely pleased, and thank you again for keeping in close touch throughout the whoie process, soup to nuts. It's been a real pleasure doing business with you, and my ML knife is one of my most valued possessions.
    All the best,
    Russ Evans
