    Like that medium sized tactical knife, I would chose 1/8 thickness, be a good all around knife.

    How about this Vic Climber for which John crafted canvas micarta scales:

    He also re-scaled this Buck 110:

    What "older" thread would be complete without......

    SCANDUCKIE

    The idea behind the scanduckie was to make a small pocket blade that could be gripped edge down or edge up and used as a slicing tool. It features a scandi grind, from back when JK first started doing them. I put finger grooves in the top and bottom to accommodate a three-finger grip in either orientation. The concave thumb-ramp features notching, making that area great for use on a fire-stick.

    I also had John put holes in the handle so it could be tied to a stick for gigging/spearing fish etc.

    Today - I would perhaps ask for the knife in satin, have the butt end rounded and champfered to use as a pry-bar, and carry it in a small kydex pocket sheath.

    Anyone else have ideas how to improve the usefulness or look of the Scanduckie?

    I got the old budget hunter. My buddy is learning how to work with leather so he is making a pocket slip for it. I will post pictures as soon as i get it back. It might have to go to its father for a spa treatment though.

    Okay, sorry it took so long, but I'll start with the pics now! I'll have to add them over a few days but here's a couple.

    I already had some JKs that my dad gave me but here's the first one I bought right from John:

    Here's a couple of smaller ones:

    I think this one is a bit of a rarity, not sure:

    Here's a larger one, one of the thicker ones I have:

    [​IMG]


    A really large one!

    I'll confess I don't really know what this one is or what it was designed for. Seems like a sheep's foot or Wharncliffe:

    As soon as I get a chance I'll photograph and upload another batch.:)

    The Nessmuk and Kephart are both the first I ever made.
    Notice they don't even have a K stamp.

    Wow, I figured we would have seen more than that! I know there are a lot more JK's out there than that! I guess I will have to get some of mine together too! Things are just still in a mess since we moved some of our stuff down here! Looks like we still have about two more Pods to bring down but, not all at one time!
