    Its not a knife :) it just has beveled edges for prying and getting through packing tape. I love using it in the studio for all kinds of things. Even building architectural models!

    I have another in the works. Just need time to put a proper edge on it.

    That's awesome! I'd say call it a "Tactical Butter Knife" if NukoTools didn't already use that name.
    I've seen that triangular logo of yours and that pocket suspension clip on the multi-tool in some other places, how much stuff do you make?

    Haha! I make a lot of stuff!

    Sometimes drives the wife crazy with all my drawings and tools everywhere. We rent so space is limited. I have to use my buddies shop most of the time.

    Here's an update. I got my 3D printed scales today. Just mounted them with chainring bolts. Planning on picking up some nice Campy bolts from the bike shop this weekend. Will also dye the scales a deep indigo :)

    Thanks for the compliments :) The scales are 3D printed laser sintered nylon. Or Polyamide 10 I believe :)

    Call me curious, but what are you going to do with the karambit style one? I didn't see a whole lot of room for attaching scales or anything.

    That is one of the nicer little karambit styles I have seen in a long time. Nice work!

    These are neat, did you use recycled blades or do you have a bunch of tool steel laying around?

    Thanks for the compliments folks!

    Hal I have a source for steel :)

    I gifted the blue Kuzuri to my Sensei in thanks for giving me his extra bench sander. I hope to one day get a proper rig :)

    Hannibal Lecter thanks. I quite like minimal karambits. In training I never spin mine. I will occasionally flip it to get reach. Otherwise its all puncture/lacerate movements. I have another design I'm going to try. Lighter in weight but still sturdy and functional
