this is yet another new design for 2012. it is a variation of our BullDozer model. this one is 7.75" long and cut from a thick slab of 5160 spring steel. it makes a mean little carry knife. very stark, raw look. spine is rounded with a small cut-out and a couple of bracket notches.

I have to say, it just wouldn't look the same without that rough texture. Really cool; it looks like something dug out of the ground and sharpened.

Is it comfortable to use without handle scales? I think a very slight modification would allow a secure cord wrap.

yeah, this model is available as is. it is also offered with a cord wrap or certain handle materials. i am making one for myself with a black horn handle. i almost never get to keep my carry knife for very long. i guess that is good and bad.

Great looking blade liontribe. Simple yet looks like it could be bery effective. Love the rough finish.

it is kind of time consuming, but always worth the wait. that finish is just striking every time. one of my favorites to build.

I love the look but I don't know about knives that don't have handles. I'd take a cord wrap for sure. :)

Very dramatic.

Don't know how well that finish holds, but it certainly looks cool.

Looks more like a cutter than a stabber.
