Making this knife I had hunting, fishing and other wilderness tasks in mind, like food prep and setting up a fire.
I completely modified this blade blank made from high carbon steel by Green River Knives, a company that you would have found traded and in use among tribes and trappers alike in North Americas wilderness as well as in most hunting cabins!
It features a pronounced belly at the tip, as swedge, flat grind and excellent slicing abilities.
Tactical Hunter - Prototype
I etched this blade with a slight fuller as well as forcing a patina, to keep it from rusting.
It will create an even nicer patina over time when doing food prep, butchering meet and fish.
The handle was shaped with a very positive hand purchase in mind while giving great choke-up capabilities and thumb ramps for skinning and gutting.
The drop-point tip of the knife keeps it from puncturing hides and torsos, when skinning.
I added a ricasso choil for easier sharpening and esthetics.
The Deepcarry Sheath is made from black vegtanned leather.
Hand stiched using awl and needle, I use the best thread there is for longevity and strength... German Tiger Thread.
It features my WCS (Woodsmans Carry System) allowing vertical carry, cross draw horizontal and diagonal, as well as Molle attachement due to the snaps on the belt loop!
The handle is constructed from hunter green linin micarta with neon green liners, and aluminium tubes.
