Just finished up this one! It's a classic drop point bushcraft knife forged from 52100. The handle is Natural canvas micarta with pins of the same material and a nice palm swell that fits the hand really well. This is a very comfortable and well balanced knife capable of handling a very wide variety of outdoor tasks.
The blade is 4.75" long, 3/16" thick with a polished grind. The overall length is 9.5". This knife comes with a hand stitched leather sheath custom wet formed to the knife.
It's available for $280. Let me know what you think! Thanks guys!
It's dark and snowing but the dancam tipi is up! Widest floor measurement is 2.8metres and height is just over 1.8metres. A little smaller than expected but it's solid, even without the storm lines (waiting to be added). The 'hat' is removable, held in place with adjustable QR buckles so it can be taken off or swivelled about depending on prevailing weather directions. The opening at the top can be zipped closed and has a reinforced hood over the vent/chimney anyway. Next job is to seal the seams then make an insect proof liner with waterproof bucket floor liner. Thinking of just making this a half inner leaving the half by the door unlined for cooking, wet muddy clothes and kit etc.
It’s been four days of pushing through with a cold. I had to get outdoors today and managed to spend some time on the deck sanding my spoon and listening to podcasts. I was also successful getting a few small fires going with my flint in the backyard as well. I’m calling the spoon done. I learned a lot on my first carving experience and I look forward to the next one. I’m really glad I pushed myself to sign up for a wilderness training program. I am not learning something new but remembering something old.
The Lionsteel M4 is my favorite knife so far. Compact but stout, M390 steel (some say the best stainless), amazing handle ergo. I found it to be a little thin so I added these G10 OD Green liners. First time I do anything like this and pretty happy how it came out. Also, custom made matching firesteel with OD green shock cord and modified TBS leather sheath. The perfect kit for me to date. #lionsteelknives#lionsteelm4#bushcraft#survival#knives#mora#casstromknives#tbsleather#tbsknives
