    Custom knife for sale

    I know this isn't actually "hammocky", but I figure a few of you good gents appreciate a fine blade. I have this listed at BCUSA, but thought you guys may be interested as well, hope you dont mind the crosspost. Gotta move it fast!



    Up for sale is an as-new JLT custom woodsman knife. for those of you who dont know, JLT is a custom knifemaker in England, you can see some of his work at http://www.jltknives.co.uk/Index.htm

    I bought it new from Adam this past summer , and really never used it too much. I really dont want to sell it, but I am running low on cash this holiday season, so off it goes! This thing feels REALLY good in the hand. And carves like nobodys business!






    Steel - 01 high carbon tool steel
    Grind - Scandi
    Blade - 95mm
    overall - 210mm
    grind height 9.5mm
    Blade thickness - 4mm

    Asking $125, shipped CONUS. Comes with a very basic leather sheath.

    Just a plug here, but I have two of Adam's knives and they are top shelf. If I had the cash I would jump on this, but wanted to pass on my opinion. Great knives.

    I have his Bushcraft knife and really like it. I also have a smaller knife he made me and it has the same scandi grind. They came scary sharp and are easy to keep that way with a leather strop.

    nice - thanks
    it seems like all the Mears style bushcraft knives I find on the internet are made in the UK. And they almost all have the Scandi grind, except for JLT's convex bushcrafter. I've recently ordered some sharpening tools and am looking forward to learning more about edges and how to maintain them.

    Turley also makes a bushcrafter with what he calls a convex Scandi grind called the Niangua River Woodlore knife.

    The scandi is by far the easiest to maintain in the woods. Convex isnt too bad, but you have to pay more attention when sharpening to get consistent results.
