ML Knives Kephart

Matt sent me this image yesterday of my newest piece from ML Knives. It's based on my interpretation of the Kephart Knife.

I've been a big fan of the Kephart design for some time and had been anxious to find someone who would make one to my specs.

This one's got a 5" blade forged out of 1095 (I think) and the blade is approximately 3/16" thick. I can't wait to get it in my hands for a bit of pre-trip testing.

It joins the ranks of the other trip candidates bringing the total of potential companions to three. The Dark Hunter, the ML Drop Point, and now the ML Kephart could potentially all go to Michigan at the end of next week. I'd prefer to take just one but that may be too tough a choice to make.

No matter which I choose I'll not be under-knifed for a week-long trip.

Thanks for reading,

Ooh Mike,

I got it last night when I got home...

This thing is how Kephart would have done it if he'd ever heard of ML Knives...

Holy Cow!!!

I may never need another knife.

Thanks for your comment,
