Eric, That is BEAUTIFUL!! I always liked the Pesh Kabz type of fixed blades. Frankly ,I am suprised Cold Steel has not (yet ) added one to their Spike line.Price???

Hi Gripper...the price on this one is: $225 shipped. Thanks for the kind words. :)

Ya I know what you mean, seems like they wouldve by now, although they do have a 'scimitar' of sorts.

Thanx to everyone for all the kind words. This knife is done and available. :)

Eric how thick is the stock on this one?, while the slim profile looks to carry with EASE, as well as lend to obtaining a razor sharp edge, BUTTT it is NOT a comfy tool to hang onto IFFF to thin...1/8 inch is my guess via eye??? Just a guess, and if so a bit thicker would serve this superb design well, NO slabs or wrap and to thin of a profile as such will cause a fixed blade to twist while in the grip, especially when wet. Otherwise looks good, Just some feedback sir.

Nice.

As the previous poster was saying, my one concern would be grippiness when wet.

Really like the blade shape and overall styling. Maybe rough-up or checker part of the grip section to help with handling. Great design; keep them coming.

Who did your heat treat and what method was used?

Hi guyz...Wanted to answer some questions.

loandr.- Its made of 3/16" thick S30V steel. I left it unwrapped cuz I figure the buyer can wrap it when he/she is ready to in the style or colors they want. I was going of an easy carry knife with a bit of balls to it. Good observation. :)

wulfbyte- I do my own heat treating in my Paragon Digital HT oven. I followed the Crucible instructions for HT'ing S30V to 58-59RC. Should be hardcore and hold an edge for quite a bit of time. :)

Good choice of steel IMO....and you certainly got the balls part right :evil:
