I made this small utility knife for a good friend, inspired by a small piece of this wonderful, wonderful Crucible laminated steel that I didn’t want to go to waste.

The 3-1/2” blade consists of .150” thick Crucible Laminate CPM-10v core/CPM154 cladding, ground to almost zero.

The handle is frame construction with a black G10 frame and Goncalo Alves handles. A simple carbon fiber pin completes the package, along with a matched leather sheath with contrasting gold stitching, made by my wife.

Now this is a utility knife that will out preform any other one. As always your work is in a class by itself.

That's a beauty Matt, I remember that steel when I visited you and admired it then, this one looks really nice and just a bit sharp too !

That sheath does a nice job of complimenting it as well, JG certainly is gaining popularity :)
