I've used this kephart for wood prep, but no photos.. so here is some kitchen prep aftermath.

Peeling and slicing ginger, chopping, mincing.. slices straight down. I was told this is in S35vn.. I hope this is true, as I don't have but one other fixed blade in s35vn and want to see how it fares. Love the thick handle and Chris grinds steel great!

I think the photo might be huge.. if so I will alter it later:

I like to see his knives in action. Cool to see the Keppie in the kitchen.

That right there is good looking knife Luke.
If feels anything like I remember it has a very nice handle.
Can't wait to see some pics in use.

Yes sir. The handle is exceptional. Great balance and rediculously sharp. I think I'm going somewhere this weekend with it.

Here are three I asked Chris to make to my specs, and he did a great job.

First, two inspired by Spyderco fixed blade knives. I'd always like the Street Bowie design, but wanted something even more compact, with just as much blade in a better steel and more utilitarian shape - this is convexed 4mm 4V steel. The idea was to design a multi-use 5" blade in as compact a package as possible for IWB carry.

Brummie, that is one sweet blade. You and Chris knocked that design out of the park. I really like my Street Bowie, but it's got that little bit of extra handle on it that I don't need.

Chris, if you ever make another I've got dibs!!

My pocket fighter, been carrying it for a month or so now.

I *think* I have the blue one now... but it's with Chris getting a new sheath. :)

But I might be wrong... ugh

You are probably right. I think it was M4. I only had it a couple of weeks and traded it back to Chris. The handle was way too small for my hands.

You must be a giant bear... I wear large or XL gloves.. and it isn't a huge handle but by no means "way too small"... unless you can't close your hand all the way due to an injury.

And I checked my knife list.. M2 steel or it is a different knife.. I have a black/blue one and it has a different sheath.. so I guess he did one in M4 and one in M2, one pancake, one taco kydex... O_O

Either way, I enjoy his hunter pattern variants... :D though the M2 he named "woodlore"...

Hope to add more pics soon! :D

You may be correct about M2. I am big guy and in some select groups may be considered a "bear". I think a combination between big hands and personal preference made it too small for me. More pics on the way as well..... My best is for last...
