A few years ago, I shared some images here of a little utility fixed blade I'd designed and hoped to have made for me by Imacasa. However, they bafflingly considered it too similar to the Condor Bombus (it's radically different!) and declined my request as a result. That ended up being for the best, because it ultimately led to me finding a way to get it produced right here in the USA. I was determined to get the design to market one way or another, and I did a bit of digging around to find a way of getting them done up, resulting in the final product you see here: an American-made knife done with a full flat grind in 1095 at 58 RC at a reasonable price point probably not too far off from what it would have cost to have made out of country! I've been using one of the pre-production prototypes for everything, and it's an absolute joy to use. It was envisioned as a compact do-all that would be comfortable without the need for any handle wrap or scales, but readily able to be outfitted with either, and scale kits will be available in the near future. The oval handle is designed to nestle into the hollow of the palm, which allows it to be comfortable, secure, and versatile in terms of hand holds without requiring a large handle. It's at home in the woods, in the workshop, on a job site, or around the house performing petty tasks. I'm immensely pleased to be finally bringing it to market!
