This style knife is what I call my “Homesteader”. I was asked to design a small/medium size knife that would be an all around user blade. The Homesteader was my answer. I consider it to be an all around very good utility knife – but don’t let that description fool you into thinking it’s not special! It’s perfectly suitable for skinning, EDC (everyday carry), food prep, camp duties, etc. and since the first one I made – it has become one of my most popular knife styles!
Simply put the Homesteader is a wonderful all around knife with a droppoint blade that has a gentle curve from the point to the butt of the handle. The blade itself functions as a guard against your hand sliding up on the blade and a flare toward the butt of the handle that helps to keep the knife from slipping from your hand.
This Homesteader knife was hand forged to shape and the blade has a forged finish over a nice aged patina, red fiber liners, some beautiful black walnut scales and brass pins. Blade is 3″ long, handle is 4.25″ long for an overall length of 7.25″.
