    Very nice knifes. All 3 blades looks nice but the otnat looks mabye best. I like how it looks to be highly pinchable. I use my knifes EDC, fishing and hunting. Impossible to get easy here in Sweden though.

    Lovin' the "same but different" contrast on both sides. Some might complain about the difference but to me, it's the best of both worlds.
    As usual, CK is right on with quick delivery of an outstanding product.

    Some clip points are still on the way I think.

    Yes, a good second, but wanted the unique shape of the otnat. Oh well, a day late....

    This otnat blade shape has been called a reverse tanto. But just looking over a spey in a gunstock in my collection the resemblance is also there. Maybe a spey with some generous belly is also an appropriate description.

    If you reverse tanto it is otnat. I drew up a "clipped" spear because I am kinda speared to death; but it looked so much like a reverse tanto I couldn't ignore it. But it does somewhat look like the ugly child of a sheepfoot daddy and spear momma.

    It's a unique shape; I dig it :thumbsup:
    Any chance the dark rams horn will return on the otnat @knifeswapper ?

    Don't know - not really a "re-order worthy" demand right now.

    I hope they will be "re-order worthy" eventually. These are some great knives. I'm enjoying the heck out of mine. Must be a sleeper.

    Good choice, I think they look much nicer. If they were a bit smaller I'd be tempted to pick one up too.

    Those ram's horn examples are certainly nice! Too tempting!

    I'm really liking my red linen micarta version, the red is very vivid and has visible striations. I attached a long black paracord lanyard to guard against loss, but I really need the weather to get a bit better so I can take it hunting.

    Great pic, Laurelbb!
