    Also known as the Back Off Blade.

    The knife is 6" OAL, Black linen micarta, Mosaic pin, with a blade of blued O1 tool steel. Kydex sheath with Tek-Lok.

    Comments or sugestions welcome.

    Nicely done!

    Is the top edge chisel or flat ground?

    Yes both edges are flat ground.

    And yes this would be more for self defense.

    I think one with the edge on the bottom would make a very good every day cutter.

    That is a very cool blueing on the blade. Kind of a strange looking handle, but I bet it fits the hand well.

    Thanks for the comments.
    Yes the C.P. was developed in part by Trace R. That is why I wanted to run it by him before I made this knife.

    Cool double grind :D. Interresting design, the big heel seem to produce a really good hand take. Cool knife.

    Scott, Which one, I guess there are two to choose from.

    Kid, There must be another pocket on that sheath to get all that stuff packed in there. Looks great!
