they are a bushcraft type knife, with a drop point, flat ground single bevelled blade, its a great utility shape. they are made from type 01 tool steel, with burr wood or some other interesting wood scales, the one’s in the pictures are from european walnut, and one from pippy lime burr, handle material depends on what i have available at the time.
