    Sam,

    I LOVE that pic. Is that on a car hood?

    In progress! I've got a pile of steel going under the grinder soon. AEB-L and 440C.

    :)

    Mine is an indispensable part of my daily kit. In addition to all what Sam said it whittles great.

    Aww, that's awesome! :)

    My boy Andrew ended up with one of my ECs and it has become the go-to family home surgery implement. Not a splinter yet has gotten away from that keen little point!

    Great design and a very useful writeup. Many knife articles fail to test the knife in a meaningful way, but Sam's article was full of useful info. I wish more knives like this one were available. Well done all around!

    Indeed it does! It is a pencil sharpening machine! :D

    The SDK the above post is my Wife's teaching EDC. It probably sees more use than mine does. Box opener,scraper, pencil sharpener, craft knife etc etc.

    Thanks! :eek:

    How is this for a tidbit:
    We average between 6-10 items of canned food in my kitchen per week. For six months, nearly every single one of those cans was opened using my S-O DK-EC.

    ..and this:
    Since I stopped carrying a folder entirely when I started testing the DK and carrying it as a neck-knife. I suddenly had something that I haven't had since I was a small child.
    Access to my right front pocket as storage.
    I ended up buying a LCR so I would have something useful to put in it. :D

    I did a micro-sized one once as a trial and a way to use a small bit of steel I had left over.

    Wish I'd taken a picture with something for scale, but the ball chain will have to do.

    That ended up as a gift for a pal who hosted me for the weekend at a big shooting match and he's seemed well pleased.

    Hmmm, I have a couple 3/4"x36" pieces of W2 that would make about 14 or 15 of those. Shame W2 isn't a great idea for a sweaty-duty neck knife, though a coating helps.

    Sam, you should instead make some skinny (less belly) Pocket Defenders. Those don't need as much rust resistance.

    But make DKs first.

    Not a bad idea! They'll be very slim, almost no belly at all. And potentially very, very pointy. Some folks would like that.
