    I've been wanting to make a Fighter smaller than the one I've been selling, so tonight I came up with this. 5" blade and 5" handle - almost 2 inches shorter than the "big" one. This is from leftover ATS-34 and going for heat treat with 22 brothers!

    The top knife is 12" long:


    Oops what's that Fighter on the bottom? It's my secret Nightmare grind! Don't look!


    Ah well, as long as Mick (Strider) doesn't kick my butt for using it I'm OK. Discuss among yourselves. [​IMG]

    Hey Valk, How hard would it be to make that into a folder? maybe a 4.25" Folder? That would be a sweet daily carry.

    I haven't tried folders yet - don't know how to make them. Good idea though, and if I ever get up to see Todd Begg I'll have him show me how. Bowie Ass Folder! Woohoo!

    About the same as the 6" - some just don't like the bigger knife. I get the same number of knives from a bar of steel though and the work is about the same so $225-$250.
