This knife was something i did on a whim to see how tough this blade style would be to grind. The knife is 8 inches overall, in 1084, and the handle is black paracord that has been gutted and epoxy soaked. The epoxy soak essentially fuses all the wraps to the knife and to each other, creating a solid monolithic mass. It can be a bastard doing this style without getting epoxy all over the knife though. This one is chisel ground since that is the more common way to grind these knives. The flats were done on a 600 belt and the bevels were done at 400 and then lightly gone over with a cork belt and green compound, as I wanted the edge to spine grind lines to be visible. Not really what i typically make, but to be honest, these more tactical style knives i have been making seem to sell fast, and at a pretty decent return on time and materials. The way i look at it, if that's what the trend is, and following that trend is putting cash in my pocket, i'm game.
