    That's a real beauty. Love that wood choice and the double sewn sheath really looks nice as well. Congrats to the new owner. Great job JD.

    Newly designed Forester
    Slight drop of the blade
    Handle reshaped and lengthened to 4 5/8" to fit the hand better in multiple positions
    Curve of the handle reduced, and handle height reduced

    Wow! I really like the changes! That knife just wants to be in the hand doing work. Very nice. Will this be the new standard?

    Both are 5/32" actually. Sami is just half the blade length so it appears more stout

    Edit: if you are looking at the bevel height, I grind the Leuku with a more robust bevel since it is a chopper. In testing the bevel geometry holds up even when chopping through oak.

    Those are really nice. Love the blade profile on the leuku.

    Brand new Cruiser model. Designed to be light and fast and inspired by the Opinel #8 this knife has a 4.25" handle and 3.25"blade. 3/32" O1 tool steel heat treated and cryo'd at Peter's to 59hrc. Flat ground with a secondary bevel. Green burlap micarta with natural micarta liners, pins, and tube. Going to be testing this prototype but I think it is going to be a performer. Thanks guys.
