    Here's a nice little camp utility knife I made recently. I like the lines and the size of this knife. Feels really light and quick in hand.

    Specs:
    Hand forged from 1075 steel, clay quenched and etched dark
    11" overall, 6 1/4" blade, .200" thick at the ricasso w/ full distal taper
    False edge, just shy of sharp
    Rounded filed thumb grip and ricasso edge
    Bronze fittings and accents
    Desert Ironwood handle

    All comments and discussion welcome.

    I should think that most comments would begin with superlatives as that is a fantastic knife. Sharp clean lines, beautiful wood, (desert ironwood has to be the premier of the knife handle woods) and all showing attention to detail that makes some knives more that just knives.
