Good day to everyone here at Sigforum! Happy new year to all even though it’s almost February. I’ve been laying a little low taking some time off for family after my wife’s surgery at the end of the year. Things are great and time to rock on!


I am contemplating doing a run of this particular style knife. It will be a cross between a Camp, Hunter, and Every Day Carry knife. It will have wonderful skinning personality also! Wink

Blade length will be about 4 to 4 1/2 inch, I’m going to start with 1/8 inch thickness on the blade. I’m thinking D2 Stainless steel. To all of you guys and appreciate a great knife, what’s your opinion on this shape?

We could start a run of these in a couple weeks!

I use it ever so often for certain shapes on my weak side. Other than that I don’t use it very often.

Nice profile. I tend to prefer knives on the smaller side so this would be right up my alley

I absolutely LOVE the Northridge! It’s a great piece of equipment! It is a variable speed.

I really like the profile. Very functional.

Damascus will be awesome.

I like the blade profile. The handle profile is nice. My only comment would be to round out the base of the hilt.
Sharp edges like that seem to always gouge into my palm.

Near Perfect IMHO. Only change I'd made was the rounding the hilt base just mentioned.........dj


Remember, this is all supposed to be for fun...................

I really like it. For my use, I find that a wide, flat ground drop point with a medium sweep from edge to tip to be perfect. Add a good finger choil, and I am happy as a clam. Looks like you captured it perfectly.

I like it a lot, and in fact, it's awfully similar to a blank I cut out of O1 and never finished. Mine's more rounded in the grip area and has a bit more of a drop point, but I wanted to try the same grip profile and more of an upswept tip like your's on the piece I have left.

As I've grown older and gained experience both in the military and LE, I have learned that I work better with knives that are on the smaller side.

The profile that you have pictured is my ideal shape and size to carry in my bail out bag and along with what I like to carry on my LBE/IBA on deployments.
