    I ordered the Jeff White English Patch Knife from Beo-wulf, this knife is one well made knife fit and finish are perfect, the knife came as sharp as any Knife I have ever owned. it was hair splitting sharp right out of the package. and made quick work of feather sticking fat wood. it did this better than any knife i have ever used, this includes habilis (and yes even a mora :) )

    "This is his standard English style patch knife, it measures 9 1/8 overall. Blade is 1095 high carbon steel, 5 1/4 inches long, 1 1/8 wide, and 3/32 thick. Handle is beautiful curly maple with a dark, hand rubbed stain and held to the full tang by 3 brass pins"

    Awesome knife! I have several knives but it seems the one I always grab when I am heading out is my Jeff White. Good choice.

    I have a few Jeff White knives with Beowulf sheaths.

    Everything a knife should be, no more no less.

    Me too! It's (the French one... only thing french I own...and made in the USA...Just sayin'! ) always on my hip when I go out. The Moras hang out in my bag for the most part. Those grooves on the spine throw some awesome sparks too. Glad you're happy with it, man. It'll serve you well.

    That's the trade knife, correct?

    The specs lead me to believe that this is actually the trade knife, no? Seems a bit large for a patch knife.

    I just received one of these in the mail yesterday (directly through Jeff White's site) and I have to agree with everything you said. THis knife is beautiful. Taking it out next weekend to give it some dirt time. Can't wait.

    Mine has become my most used knife. It has become my kitchen knife and is used daily for anything cut in the food department. His knives are the best buy on the market (I have 3). Thinking of buying a Mora? Spend a couple of bucks more and get real knife!

    Is this the same thing as the "mora like" knife Beo-Wolf sells in his vendor forum? They look really similar. Blade length different maybe?

    EDIT: Compared descriptions and it sounds like they are one in the same. In any case, a rose by any other name.... am I right? A very sweet knife. Looking more and more like the next addition to my kit!

    I have one of the older Jeff White/Beo-Wolf set ups and it is a great daily use knife. It does exactly what a good knife should do...no more, no less.

    yes, they are the same. since each knife is handmade, there are sometimes minor differences. To me, they are mora like in size, price, and quality, and they take a reasonable amount of heavy use and then come back for more.
    I have heard Jeff refer to them as both "patch" and "trade".

    Coming from the mora I’ve found that my French trade knife from Jeff doesn’t “bite” as well for feather sticks etc. It seems that the edge profile is more convex, which I’m used to a scandi. Did you find this to be similar on the patch knife? Been wondering if I should try and re-profile to more of a scandi on mine.

    I have 3 Jeff White knives and I love them. I also like Dean Oliver's knives for rendezvous and bushcrafting

    A patch knife isn't meant to make feather sticks. It's meant to cut the patch around a seated ball in a black powder muzzleloader. Typically, they should have a flat grind.

    Just sayin'...
