This is the first Chef's knife I've ever made, I like the way it came out. 12 and a 1/4 or so overall length. 8in blade. 3/32in thick AEB-L flat ground very thin and handrubbed. I put six brass pins in the blade, just for looks. Bubinga is a stable wood, and I finished it with tru oil. There is always the risk of natural wood moving. I recommend non silicone paste wax for handle protection and good looks (I use Mother's). No dishwasher use, handwash and dry, don't leave sitting in water. $220 free shipping. Most people have a knife block, but if wanted I can build a stand, a sheath, or etc. I know I have a biased opinion, but I think it is a very beautiful knife and will last a lifetime or more.

It's been a while. Here are three recent backspring folders, the top two are sold.

EDIT: Bottom is $130 + probable $10 shipping.

This is my take on the old Kephart design. It is a proven, simple design and doesn't have any unnecessary attributes. I really like how this particular version of it turned out. This knife has a convex grind (think appleseed instead of a triangle flat grind) and a swell at the front of the handle, where it would normally taper, both of which are abnormal for my knives. Around 8 and a 1/4 overall length. Convex, machine finished AEB-L steel, heat and cryo treated. Exhibition grade Pomelle Bubinga, finished with tru-oil. The sheath is of Veg. tan leather and has a copper rivet at the throat. Very nice retention and fit. Oiled and one coat of wax. $200 with free shipping, lifetime warranty with questions asked. This knife would make a great Christmas present!

Was seeing if you’d make another one like this but with a simple good leather sheath w/. Tight belt loop

Great-looking knife, buddy.
