I made this knife as part of a fishing rig. I wanted a light but capable blade to accompany my unhooking tools.

5mm O1 steel,235mm OAL,115mm blade,leather sheath and sling with stainless fittings.

Thanks for looking. Comments,good or bad,always welcome.

Great looking knife. The sheath, and acroutements looks well designed and thoroughly thought out. I gather from the photos that your gear is well organised. Most probably based on sound experience. Well done!

Thank you. I'm a life-long fisherman. I've made several rigs over the years. I like the way they hang around the back out of the way and don't pull my trousers down.This rig gives me options to take only the tools I think I will need.


that's a nice knife! Would you still use O-1 after using it a while? Or, do you find the maintenance an issue for keeping rust off? I love O-1 and A-2...I've started using A-2 mostly because it doesn't patina as quick.

Also, that sheath is a real beaut!
