    Default My Bryan Breeden knife. Tessa.

    What happens when you take the day off work and travel to Fairbury NE to hang out with Bryan Breeden? When I did it I got a cool new knife.
    After talking about design and use.
    He did a little cutting

    Then some grinding

    So far

    some more grinding and heat treat.

    After lunch and talking about everything from knives to the Marines to politics and TV.
    Add some handles and pants

    Meet Tessa


    I have enough paracord on the sheath to make a bow for a bow drill, make a lanyard , strap it to a pack or wear it horizontal on my belt.( a little long for that)
    Bryan used a solid 7/16 rod for the center pin then dished it out to make the “Breeden divot” ( patient pending )
    Works well

    It chops and splits better than most 5/23” thick 4 ¾ long blades.

    Cuts shavings great

    the edge comes close the handle for greater control.

    The spine is squared for scraping wood and works great on a fire steel

    The handle is 4 ¾ with the exposed tang . A little longer then I wanted at first but good to have if used with gloves or mittens.

    The squirrels on my hike approved.

    I am not of the one knife for everything school but for me this is about as good as it gets.
    I’m even feeling OK about the pending zombie / vampire apocalypse.

    This was the secound time Bryan and I got together. He knows his stuff and is fun to hang out with. Thanks Bryan.

    Thanks for posting. As you already know you have a great blade in hand. I got my first knife from Bryan about 2 months ago. That is one very good guy to know and he can make one heck of a knife. The things he does with O-1 steel and a convex edge are amazing! I have chopped, batoned, made fuzz sticks, made traps, and done kitchen prep with mine and it still shaves.

    That's a sweet blade! One of these days I'll see "the one" and pull the trigger on a custom.
