    A patch knife would be sweet. I'm trying to put together a nice muzzleloading kit. Yeah, I'm lazy and use pre cut patches but if I had a nice patch knife I'd learn how to do it proper like.

    Hello Lisa,
    A Kephart in 1/8" or 3/16" with a 4.75" handle and 4.5 to 4.75" blade.
    That bird knife sounds great to but without too"bendy" of a blade. In 01, of course .

    Regards,

    Ezra

    Kephart should be 1/8 and nessy 1/16 or 1/8.

    You could make a larger 7" western bowie out of 3/16.

    Also a nice woodlore/bushcraft knife in 1/8 would be sweet

    you could also do a 5" drop point hunter style in 3/16. That is what I used to make my main woodsknife. very tough and sturdy and a good size.

    I may be the minority here....but I'd love to see carving tools. Sloyd knife, spoon knife, spoon and bowl gouges (especially the gouges).

    I'd be really interested in a Nessmuk. I'll second Kerri's suggestion of the 5/32 I want more versatility out of a blade and I think that would fit the bill.

    Drop point or similar that is 3/16" thick. Blade length around five inches. Handles are up to you.

    +1 Do you have any pictures of the Nessmuk's you've made?
