    knife specs

    Chairman, that knife is 10 1/2" long with a 5 3/4" blade. It's sort of the kind of knife I like to make.
    I like a handful.
    I want to feel that knife in my hand when I'm up to my elbows in guts!
    This was ordered by an elk hunter in Oregon who said he didn't want a "sissy" knife when he had a 900 pound elk on the ground! He wanted to be able to quarter it up and get the **** out of Dodge! Those were his words.
    And, personally, I couldn't agree more.
    If a person takes some time away from home and work, spends gobbs of money to go hunting somewhere, and then ends up with success laying on the ground in front of him, he needs something to get the job done. Something he can depend on back in the woods or up on the side of a mountain somewhere.
    I love doin' what I do.
    (I just had to throw in this new picture of the Micarta Hunter I made last week. It shows it much better.)

    I do appreciate the kind words!

    You have my word I would do whatever I could to make sure you were pleased with the knife of your choice.
    And, I stand behind my knives for as long as I am able to do knifework.
