Hammered steel sahlute fellow knife friends!! 

 

Straight up……..huge fan of the knife….the size, the feel, the process, the steel. Straight up HUGE FAN!!!! 

 

I was contacted by the folks at Indy Hammered Knives , ended up selecting the custom knife kit. 

I muffed up the wood scales sent in the kit (and actually wrapped on a paracord handle) until a friend offered

to place some walnut scales on it, since he thought he owed me a favor.  The knife turned out magically. 

Scales are soooooooooooooooooooo waaaaaaaaaaaaay

better than I could've ever done. Thank you TONY!!!

 

I've been on the "watch" for a fixed blade knife that was what I might consider "pocket size". In other words, could be toted inside my front pocket.

While this IHK knife is just a little too big for that, it is , IMO absolutely perfect size for bushcraft, or woodcraft. 

In addition to being razor sharp, made of 1095 carbon steel, it's nearly weightless. The grips fill the palm of my hand very naturally! 

 

The size of the blade allows for almost complete use from tang to tip and it's spine is thick, right at 1/8" all the way to the tip.  Masterful

for making showers of sparks with your ferro rod for fire starting!! 

 

I've also batoned wood with tis IHK knife and found it to be stellar for the chore. 

Simply put, if you're looking for a high end custom knife without the high end, or even middle end price point, look no further! 

You won't be dissappointed!!

 

Head to IHKNIVES.com and see what James has to offer!!

 

Hold up…….almost forgot.  This fixed blade knife comes with a beautiful dangle leather sheath!!

 

Stay outdoors, and share it with some kids!!
