Ok , I kept seeing this knife on Feebay and I just had to buy it . ( No choice )

A) The knife is small .. Really small , and feels small ..
B) My slightly larger than medium hands feel crowded ( claustrophobic ) clutching the grip .
C) This might almost be a child sized knife , or at the very least a knife for small hands . Yes , I have already modified mine cos my hand felt so crowded gripping the knife .
D) Factory edge was beyond FUBAR , it was non existent !
E) I had to go straight to a regrind .. Around 18 degrees . ( Give or take ) And it was a some what rubbish factory grind / bevel .
F) Grips are Plastic , and will need to be modified to match my blade mods to the grip to make my index finger less crowded . Or just do a para chord wrap !

Knife is 8 inches , or around 203mm . the plastic grips are around 85mm and the small knife does have some heft to it - around 220 grams .
It's hot and humid and I just love to hate on - hot & humid .
Tomorrow is a cooler ( wet ) day . So some rope slicing some time in the future ( not to distant )

I have an mtech that I made a wooden handle and sheath one rainy day in the shed .conduit sheath , poly pipe slip over retainer holds as good as anything on the market .
had a silly tactical handle before .
440c steel . Handy size knife , a little bigger than yours 9 1/4 “ length , 4 1/2 inch blade.
Seem to remember taking black coating off the steel . Its a little ripper . Always seems better when you have a bit of yourself into the making of your gear . CD1D9AF8-4900-4483-AB43-FD63DFC01264.png
