    Here is an idea of design for you knife builder guys. This picture comes from "The Backwoodsman" magazine and was submitted by reader Alex Moore, Appalachian Knife and Fur; [email protected]
    I take no claim of ownership of the picture or items in it.
    One has curly maple scales, the other is green canvas micarta. Both are 1095 high carbon steel, 8-1/2" overall with a 3-7/8" cutting edge.
    I had remembered someone was looking for design ideas and these look like winners.

    The original design comes from Grohmann Knives of Canada (Grohmann/D.H. Russell collaboration): http://www.grohmannknives.com/. As was mentioned, Cold Steel also offers a very affordable version, too. I have the CS version, and I like it enough that I may spring for a real Grohmann one of these days. It's a very useful blade shape with comfortable ergos (blade edge sits well below the hand). :cool:
