    Default Altoid tin sized knife..

    Got a request for a knife like this and thought it may be something to make regularly..These are two samples..All steel(in this case 1095) with a couple holes..Between 3 1/4" and 3 1/2"..Feedback on blade profile, handle etc would be appreciated.. Trying to keep the cost very reasonable. around $25 shipped..

    Top profile looks better to me than bottom- especially from a lashing application.

    I like the top one. I suppose it's a drop point? Seems to me like that would be a good blade for this type of knife. I could see my daughter carrying/using something like this around the camp and house. For that matter I'd carry one as well. Im in if you produce them.

    It will be the end of next week(because of the holiday) before we have the steel but I plan on having at least 6-8 of them made for the first test run..Maybe more if you guys like the idea.
