Im willing to bet john has a bucket of old ones hanging out in his shop for one reason or another.
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......
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:
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.
A really nice group of early models!

Here's a few more.
One of my personal favorites of the wood handled ones.
Another genuine classic blade!
The only folder of the bunch.
Whew! That's enough for today, will get some more in the day or so.
The Nessmuk and Kephart are both the first I ever made.
Notice they don't even have a K stamp.
You got them right, right out of the gate! Beautiful knives.
Needs yellow micarta scales
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!
I just need time to photograph the next batch!
whats this tiny kephart on the bottom called
Yep, as John said. Pocket Kephart. Great little knife.
Just wanted to share this.
Where would the EWOK fit in on the timeline?
