    I bought this here a few months ago advertised as probably a PKS3 "Survival." There are no maker marks on this extremely well made blade, but it LOOKS similar to the BHK/PKS knives. Spine is super sharp and throws wonderful sparks. A fine cutting edge as well, but it is a bit chunky in my medium sized paws where I have found near 'grail knife' perfection for me in my BK-62 'Beckhart' and so this languishes on a shelf and that's a bushcraft sin...good tools should be used.

    While similar knives are selling for ~$130 + another $40 or so for a simple sheath brand new, I bought this knife WITH this sheath here for $70 and would be happy to get my $70 back and see this in the hands of someone it fits better and who will use it. PayPal preferred.

    OAL: 10.25"
    Exposed Spine: 5.5"
    Cutting Edge: 5"

    There is a small 'scuff' around the lanyard hole on this side...

    Thick sharp spine.

    PKS= Pathfinder Knife Shop, one of Dave Canterbury’s ventures. It’s not a BHK Knife.

    I did not at all suggest that it was. I said that it 'LOOKS similar'.

    I have no idea who made it any more than you do, I bought it here used. Your suggestion that the two are not related at all is wrong however.
    Canterbury and BHK have collaborated with such knives in the past.

    Yes, I know they have. Big difference between the 2. Canterbury had some made by Jeff White as well. PKS also sold blanks, so it could have been assembled by someone.

    Large/XL depending on the brand. Typically a 44 in suit jacket.
    I had an all red wool jacket (think Boy Scout Leader style with the cape) that I sold here because I bought it on a whim and it was way too large. I've got a few of these now in Green and Buffalo Plaid, but none in that nice red. I used to wear my dad's when I was growing up (it had a big Order of the Arrow patch on the back...he and I were both Ordeal Brothers) but even if it is still around and I inherit it someday, it won't fit me now. My dad is smaller than I am now.
