    This is one of the most practical camp knives around, not a wood chopper, but great for all around use.

    That is one fantastic looking blade. It looks like a great utility kitchen knife.

    The knife in your logo is actually what I would call a "Camp Knife".

    Do you still make that one? When I think of a camp knife, I think of using it for everything at camp, not chopping down trees. Things like preparing food, a little minor clearing limbs, skinning, butchering, etc. And not completely out of place on your belt while hunting, hiking, etc. More of a large hunting knife that is also suitable for food preparation. Or a heavy duty kitchen knife that can also be used for skinning. The edge has to go to the heel or you can't cut chop your veggies with it!

    In other words, if you only had one knife (like the mountain men) and had to do everything except chopping wood (which you would have an ax for).

    That knife seems to fit the bill perfectly!

    I do still have the pattern, but at 1/4” thick it’s not much of a slicer.
