Nostalgic models

Here you will see my Historic models, these were influenced by a knife of old made famous by some individual a hundred or more years ago.

Nessmuk

My nessmuk model incorporates the most comfortable handle profile out there, the "hump back" shape of the handle really fills your hand  and is very comfortable to use for extended periods of time.  at 8 1/2" overall it is the perfect size for all those outdoor excursions. At 3/32" thick in the spine it is thin just like the original, or if you like a bit more heft we can up it to 1/8" thick L6 high carbon tool steel. The natural age and patina of the steel gives the knife that rustic look, especially with the scandi grind. But if you like your knives more finely finished I can falt or convex grind it, or maybe you'll want to take a look at my nessmuk deluxe! Handle options are endless, starting price is $165 w/ sheath or $125 w/o sheath

Crown Nessmuk

My crown nessmuk is one of the closest I have seen to the original avalable with different blade lengths up to 4 3/4" down to 3". handle is affixed with epoxy as well as two peened brass pins. standard 3/32" l6 high carbon tool steel just like the original. Starting price for large is $150 w/o sheath or $175 w/ sheath, small models start at $ 125 w/o sheath $150 w/ sheath

At 3/32" thick in the spine it is thin just like the original, or if you like a bit more heft we can up it to 1/8" thick L6 high carbon tool steel.

Horace kephart was a well known outdoorsman, much like Mr. sears (nessmuk). His drop point design with built in guard is a perfect companion while out in the woods.
