    My take on the classic #1 belt knife with the flat grind option. This one is made from AEB-L 1/8" stock and features stainless pins, thong tube on 'Cocobolo' Dymalux laminate. 8" overall with a 3.5" cutting edge. The flat grind option doesn't seem to be as popular as the regular grind, but it comes with what I think is a nicer spine taper.

    Nice one. Seems to still be very popular design and a success as far as knife making models go.

    Great knife Dan. I was just contacted by someone looking to have one of these made.

    Ya, they are definitely finding their way into the American psyche. I guess once the bushcrafting folks learn of the Nessmuk and its ovoid blade shape, they see the Grohmanns as an attractive range of knives.

    Little green brother. This is a variation on the belt knife design; smaller radius finger choil and overall smaller with a wee 2-1/2" of cutting edge.
    This one in 154CM with dyed green curly maple and some brass bits and pieces.

    Nicely done. Definitely on my build list but I'm also partial to making a version of the #3 also as the issued belt knife of the Canadian Army for ages.
