My interest in knives are primarily the technical aspect with focus on functionality and mechanical properties as toughness and wear resistance. To achieve excellence in my knives I use the optimum materials for knives available today, and I have access to heat treatment practices unavailable for most knifemakers.

My background as a metallurgist gives me an understanding of materials beyond that of most. This is a great resource in most parts of knife making, especially in material selection and heat treatment. There is a vast number of steels on the marked, and those considered the best are in most cases not. To evaluate and choose materials you have to understand how the steel is affected by the composition and heat treatment.


The purpose of this knife was to design a cutting tool for all-around use. It had to be small enough to be carried on the body with out ant hassle. It should also be powerful enough to do serious hard work, in the addition to the necessary ergonomics.
- The handle has a barrel shape, the ideal form for knives.
- The finger guard prevents the hand from slipping on to the blade, but without being too much in the way during use.
- The full tang construction protrude the handle scales to for pounding with the end of the handle. This enables the knife to be hammered into trees for chopping.
- The guard and choil is narrow to let the hand be close to the edge. This is necessary to do power cuts with a good grip.
- A large part of the edge is straight for wood working.
- A small radii at the belly for higher pressure during work.
With A8-mod heat treated to 60 HRC in a thickness of 5 mm it will withstand much more force than one man can inflict without serious tools to help him. This is also one of few steel used for knives that can withstand heavy blows with hard objects without breakage.
The knife can be supplied with both wood and composite handle, satin and beadblasted blade finish, and kydex, leather and nylon sheath.
