If you have been around knives before, you know the old saying....."The best type of knife you can own is the one you will have on you when you need it."
Over the years I have owned a lot of knives, and although I've owned various types and sizes of knives, these days I like a knife of the style seen here that I describe as a bushcraft knife.
This type of knife is adept in fieldcraft and can be utilized for any number of outdoor tasks.
Here are the specifications for my recently finished Bushcraft knife.
Type of steel.......D2
Rockwell hardness...... 58
Blade thickness..... 1/8"
Blade length..... 4 1/4"
Blade Finish.....Glass Bead Blasted
Overall length...... 8 3/4"
Handle material..... Cocobolo Wood
Scale Pins..... 3/16" Brass
Thong attachment sleeve..... 1/4" Brass
The Insert photo shows the knife secured in its leather sheath.
The sheath is made from 8/9 weight leather, moistened and formed to shape, and assembled (blade welt) with contact cement, and then saddle-stitched to finish it off.
