    Well I think these will be a regular thing..Phillip always liked them and they are kinda fun to make with the flowing curves..Phillip still helps me with these deep bellied knives. Not the same as a straight blade:33: This ones made from 1/8" thick O1 with desert ironwood handles..I think the shape is pretty close, what do you think?
    We'll be working on a Kephart in 5/32" O1 and desert ironwood tomorrow..

    I really like the traditional lines and looks of your knives; with that little modern twist thrown in.
    The Nessmuk is such a functional design that is good for so many things across the board.
    Keep up the great looking work !!

    Thats a nice effort :)

    The only thing i could suggest be done differently is that the front of the scales match the angle of the plunge line. :) other than that....
    Well done :)

    That is one gorgeous knife! So how deep would I have to dive in the piggy bank to get one just like this? :4:

    I really like the super-clean and elegant ergonomic lines/flow of both the blade and the handle. Even with the curvature of the scales, it looks like you have a number of viable handhold configuration for various tasks.

    That's a very visionary and forward-thinking knife design for a Nessmuk.
