Boot knife kwaiken {The Bootken}


Well-Known Member
So to prove I still know how to make new designs, :D, I decided I wanted to try making my first dagger.
It is based off my Oregonto model kwaiken. I wanted to maintain a similar tip geometry but in a double edge design. It was pretty tricky keeping all of the facets symmetrical but I am pretty pleased with how it came out. The blade steel on this one is CPM20cv stainless and it is razor sharp all around. Blade length is around 4".

I call it the "Bootken". Clever, right? :cool:

Now that's cool! Nice work on keeping everything symmetrical. Shows the skill of the maker off nicely.
