Hi Folks

I needed a new knife for the trail so I made this one.

http://www.kidcouteau.com/sitebuilder/images/mykuk-677x892.jpg

Canvas micarta handle
Bronze pins peened over for strength
7 3/4" blade 5/32" thick

Short enough that it is very fast in my hand but long enough to hit with authority.

Now I need to make a sheath.

What do you think?

traditional type with a small Karda knife and striker? Maybe a ferro rod loop on the side?

Man I love it!

I much prefer a knife like this, or a small machete, to a hatchet or tomahawk. The large blade has much more utilitarian appeal to me here in the jungle like parts of Georgia.

It looks like it would really put down the hurt on whatever it hit. I like the Kukri's looks without the ceremonial notch.

Also liked the edge he put on the back of the tip :)

Looks very nice. How thick is the blade at its thickest point, and more importantly, how heavy is it?

Staight up bro - I think you should PM Gabe about making them for sale through OST - he has folks who could make kydex sheaths for them - if you put a little St. James Cross eteching on there I would need to have one if I could afford it. I know at least 3 other guys personally who would want one too. I think you could sell 50-100 of those EASY.

Just a thought -

Hi

Big thank you to all of you for the kind words.

I only do this as a hobby business.

But I definitely would be willing to discuss it with Gabe.

PS I did a u-tube vid on another of my knives if you are interested

Great job. I agree with the guys, you need to talk with Gabe on this.

Hi All

I guess this is what happens when you leave a couple of knives alone without supervision.

Kid,

I see a Phil Hartsfield influnce here, am I right? If so, you did a great job! PH was my original inspiration to start making knives, and in the months to come I'll be getting bak into it.

Have a great weekend,
EW.
