The model 1 is the fruit of lessons learned projects in the woods. As my wife knows all too well, if I'm not in the shop I'm probably in the woods so this design was inevitable for me.
It features a very severe drop point that falls to just below the center of the blade. This serves three purposes, it allows for easier drilling with the tip, allows for an easier time gutting and allows you to split wood with the tip edge. In order to get this massive drop and still have a straight cutting edge I had to compensate by lowering the rest of the knife. It's actually a very comfortable knife to use because of the drop.
This knife and the Green river are pretty much the culmination of my own woods experience and reflect best how I use a knife.
The model above features a full height grind, heat treat scale left on the flats of the blade, Black g10 handle scales, stainless steel sandwich spacers, black g10 tang spacers, stainless steel Pins and an optional steel pommel plate.
Options available: Pretty much anything. A hidden tang version is also available.
