Just arrived. Saw that one of the online companies got in a few of these so snagged one. Last one too.

Big fan of Krein. As well as simple designs like this in green micarta. Fit and finish is flawless too.

Sorry for the drab shots but it's super overcast and cloudy, rain/snow on the way.

There's a lot I like on this one: the drop point, jimping, choil, and handle shape.
Very clean look.

Looks to be about the size of an ESEE 3?

I have no idea if he's taking orders. This one was a lucky catch.

He does drop a few knives each week it seems, over on his Facebook page. I have been lucky lately , I have a Wharnie on the way and have a slot for a larger blade in the future.

Blade length on this one is 3", with an overall length of 6 1/2"

Love that look. Have you caught him on the podcast Mark of the Maker? Him and a couple other makers and a collector/friend I'd guess you'd call him. Pretty good listen.



Hell, is other people! J-P S

I've always loved Tom's work, this one is a beauty. My favorite handle material is the Green/Brown Canvas Micarta, Bob Loveless introduced it to knives.

Nice looking knife. Be sure to show us the Wharncliffe when you get it; that's a favorite blade shape of mine.

You bet, should be here Saturday. Two Krein's in a week. I'm on a hell of a roll.
