After having made hundreds of knives in the Scandinavian tradition of a zero-bevel grind, I set out to make one with a shorter blade and YES and full size handle.

There are very few 3-inch-blade knives that have a full-size handle.

This one is the exception.  You get a full 4.5 inches of handle with palm swell and contouring.  It is probably the most comfortable knife handle I’ve ever made.

Made with 3V steel that is 0.145″ thick, you get a knife that is lightweight, yet stout enough to handle batoning and heavy use.  The blade is wide near the front of the handle for weight and strength and tapers quickly to a tip to allow precise cutting.  There is jimping on the spine and a small guard to help with those times your grip isn’t 100% yet the demands you place on the knife are 110%.
