    Default Some new Knives coming soon..Some feedback please..

    We are going to start making some Nessmuks's again and start making Kephart knives too..Also when we ordered some O1 today I ordered a piece of thin 3/32" stock to make some lightweight bird & trout style knives..On another note we are in the process of ordering quench plates and foil so we can heat treat A2, though thats a few weeks out..I plan on having some of the A2 tested to make sure Im hitting my target numbers before we start using it..
    On the other knives..What size thickness would you like to see used? 1/8", 5/32", 3/16" etc..Any other designs your interested in seeing? Changes to the Nessmuk or Kephart style you would like to see?
    Thanks and feedback is certainly appreciated..

    i think a nice small bowie style and a mora style blade would be great and a bush lore style.

    The bird and trout interest me.
    As do the Nessmuk since I have been eyeballing them but don't know if I want one yet.
    I would be interested in seeing what you come up with in a neck knife and the mora/puukko.

    I sat surprise us with something all your own and sell it like crazy since I know it would be gorgeous, sharp and useful.

    not sure if you ever made one but... i liked the style of the bark river pro scalpal II. thinking of a 3.5- 3.75 inch handle and 3.25 in blade with a 3 inch working edge. possibly a beefy amboyna burl or perhaps a black ash burl handle with mosaic pins..........just off the top of my head .. full height convex too.

    My thoughts exactly! I prefer 1/8" thickness for my knives and I like O1 steel.

    A hook knife would be really nice as well.

    Howdy Lisa....
    although I've never seen you Nessmuk design my vote for thickness would be 1/8"....I look forward to seeing them when you get a few crafted up.
    Have a great weekend!

    1/8" for kephart
    1/16" or 3/32" for nessmuk

    I'd like to see a 1/8" woodlore clone and a 1/4" golok.

    I have a great Nessie and Hudson Bay knife. My next knives will be a small necker patch knife and a smallish upswept fixed blade to use as a hunting knife. Something like the trade knife design. If I could decide on exact sizes and shapes I would order one.... open to suggestions!
