    Nice history! What's with the pipe cleaner at the pommel of the knife? And the black sharpie numbers written on the handle?

    Nevermind on the pipe cleaner part, I see it's just a holder for the knife. Ethan looks happy!

    Thanks, Joe. Maybe Ethan could roll out a new kephart for a new tweener. What would it be an 18?

    Iirc ethan said he would put the idea forth to the powers that be but suggested its too close to the bk16 and if it did come to fruition it would be a limited run.

    Total newbie here, and I’m about to do some Googling, but is the Kephart Sheath Knife one of Ethan’s inspirations? I see similarities in the handle and thickness of the blade.

    It predates Ethan by a good margin.

    It’s essentially the daddy of the modern bushcraft knife.
