    Sheath work...

    I just got this one back from review. It's going to see a lot of woods time.

    I was asked to build a 3.5″ bushcraft knife with a fine Scandinavian ground edge for review and testing by Kim Breed, an editor for Blade Magazine. So, I built this Mini Woodlore model (a 3.5″ Scandinavian ground bushcraft knife in my regular product line) to my personal preference to use as a personal user following the review. This particular knife is the 37th knife that I have completed which bears my logo. The full article is available in the August 2019 edition of Blade Magazine.

    It is in CPM 3V steel with high contrast, straight grained Arizona desert ironwood scales over 1/8″ ivory paper micarta liners with brass hardware and a brass mosaic lanyard tube. CPM 3V is my favorite steel for this type of knife. Arizona ironwood is one of my favorite hardwoods of all time, and the handle/liner/pin/tube combination are identical to the first two of this model that I ever made. One of those two was supposed to be for myself from my original batch of knives, but it went to a dear friend as a matched father and son set; both Randy and Owen love their knives and still use them daily. I thought about using some truly exquisite ironwood burl, but instead opted for a piece of more affordable, simple, high contrast, straight grained wood since this one is going to be a heavily used blade. The handle contouring is full and completely fills my hand to improve control/handling and reduce fatigue during extended heavy use.

    The sheath is a hand fit, full coverage tooled leather pancake design using Harmon Oak leather with scalloped edge, drain hole, double row saddle stitched by hand with braided thread, and a removable dangler loop with removable D-ring. This was a full featured sheath with almost all of the options because I really like leather craft and wanted something truly unique and special to carry this one in.

    The Mini Woodlore was reported to:
    • be “very aggressive in crunch cutting through 100 pieces of half-inch rope”
    • cut 20lb copier paper “like a razor, very aggressive in its slicing”
    • with cardboard, it “sliced very smoothly and aggressively” while making “loud noises” when cutting
    • be “quite smooth in making great curlicues” in wood
    • “has a very sharp edge, almost as if it were made just for whittling”
    • “The handle was very comfortable while whittling.”
    • “sliced great” and “would be great to carry in the woods.”

    I feel pretty honored to have been chosen, especially this early in the hobby. That’s kind of cool. I’m also happy to have another Mini Woodlore for myself again. This one is not being sold.

    @Wasp , I have it's twin. Most comfortable iwb setup I've ever carried; it's so thin and light it just disappears, even wearing elastic waist band shorts.
    Made a sheath for mine incorporating an Ulti-Clip.

    I'm digging that sheath, what did you use to create space between the rivets for the ulti clip and the blade?

    I used a piece of 8-9oz leather, cut the same size as the clip, beveled the edges and taped it to the knife.
    I added the tape on the second attempt.
    Nuff said.

    Lol!
    I actually casted this. I ordered a grenade keychain online (it is metal) casted it in silicone, then did a resin pour with some glow powder.

    Not to worry I’m right next to you on this! Lol
    Compared to what others do here, I’m always blown away by the amount of work that people put in to their craft! Let alone all the hiking some do! Makes my back hurt thinking about it! Lol

    Your innovative artwork is only slightly eclipsed by the overwhelming awesomeness of your knife collection.
    You have really great taste in edgy steel, my friend.

    Fiddleback Hiking Buddy.

    I had planned on doing some yard work this evening and was going to use the Hiking Buddy to help trim some smaller branches/shrubs & fix a few sprinkler heads, but it got to 107* today and everything is just heat soaked!
    My lazy butt walked right back in the house and told my wife “No Thank You!”
    I’ll have to get up just before sunrise to get this stuff done.

    Did manage to get a shot of my Hiking Buddy before I ran my sorry butt back in the house! Lol

    Is that G-I-T-D? Where do you get them? I have been looking for an Mini Aurora in GITD Pine-cone and was unsuccessful.

    NICE!

    Man, I love those scales. Looks good and grippy and a great shape as well.
