    Here is a pair I was commissioned for by a friend and repeat customer. After finishing these "proof of concept" blades, I have to say I am extremely impressed with their overall design and feel. Though not a traditional pikal, it is light, fast, sharp and compact, and has just about everything you could want in a blade meant for the same role as a pikal. Beyond that, it would work very well in standard EDC and utility tasks. I think the design is a big win.

    These two are 3/32" 15N20, which I think is a great choice for this design. Blade is 4 inches long.

    I didn't take great pics because I was busy and trying to get to the post office in time, and I'm not a great photographer in the first place, :oops: but thanks for looking just the same!

    I've really been enjoying 15n20. I have a stack in .07, which I would have said was too on its own..but I made a puko in it, and love it. Seems pretty tough!
