    Right on. It looks like it would make a nice butchers knife or froe.

    I'd really love to see how D3V performs in a scandi grind.

    Just the Behemoth Chopper as a Pre-Order production run... So those who want one can get one...

    Fingers crossed.

    That's because you most likely have plenty of slicers. I'm with Petey2.1 on the slicer-train :)

    Along the lines of what has already been mentioned, seasonal offerings would be nice. A roast fork or carving knife for T-Day. Pumpkin carver for Halloween. Something cute for V-Day. So on and so forth...

    I'm not aware of a CPK that's crafted out of ca. .095 stock.

    But I'm very new to Carothers, only being aware of the brand for a little over 2 years...so maybe there is...if so I apologize for my ignorance of the subject. :oops:

    Full height flat grind would take advantage of the geometry best. It'd be tempting to beef up the spine a bit but that'd may be encouraging some folks to baton <a little maybe> and the lateral stress on the stock would likely induce a catastrophic failure. :eek:
    Plus, it'd defeat the purpose of the design, IMHO.

    Just seems like one of the few bases the Carothers Crew doesn't have covered ATM. A filet blade being another. Maybe one blade could cover both?

    But what do I know? I don't design em or grind em...I just buy em. :)

    Still, it'd be nice to have a go-to blade for cutting the tape on CPK goodie boxes and afterwards processing the cardboard for the recycling bin ;) ... CPK STYLE! :cool:

    A DAGGER with a 5" blade, somewhat like a Loveless bootknife but much more the look and shape of the Carothers Dagger (see below):

    No better way to explain than with the words direct from the Evil Genius hisself:

    "The scales are fully bonded with Acraglas and there is a total of 16 threaded hidden pins going into a total of 32 blind threaded holes in the Micarta scales. The blade, guard, tangs and pommel are all milled of a single piece, there are no joints. If you hold it at the guard and give it a little thump the entire dagger rings. It's a very solid weapon."

    Materials are Latrobe A2 and Westinghouse micarta.
