    A few weeks ago a fellow member posted a thread asking for someone to design and make a "lime knife" something that was small enough to take to the beach with a bucket of beers, cut limes, and not have to worry about rust on the blade if it wasn't cleaned right away. We went back and forth with a few ideas and I put together this design:

    6al4v titanium, Carbidized cutting edge on a full flat grind with a modified chisel edge.
    Blackwood Carbon Fiber from Matt Diskin & Lime green g10 liners
    Caplifter integrated into the handle
    OAL 6in, 2.8in edge

    Being full titanium and carbon fiber, rust will never be a problem, and with the carbidized edge it will hold a nice toothy cutting edge for a while, and is pretty easy to touch up. Caplifter works like a charm too...always open to feedback on finishing, technique, etc:)

    Interesting design. Nicely executed.

    I saw the bottle opener, and though I would omit that, and then read it was for cutting lines, so the bottle opener made sense....
