    Hatcher Nimrod

    This is a prototype hunter/utility that I just finished this morning. I ground the bevels of this knife using a 36" radius platen made by Nathan the Machinist. The result is a very subtle hollow grind that I find very appealing. This knife also has a subtle convex edge, something I've been...
