    This is such a wonderful little knife.

    It doesn't fit in any category. It holds limited purpose. The blade is short and stubby, the handle is full and fat, none of the details seem to match one another, and yet the overall form has a strange appeal that I just can't reconcile.

    Really, just like a Pug. A nearly purposeless dog with bad dimensions that somehow wins you over with it's charm.

    For this one, the 3" blade is .200" thick Crucible CPM3v, hand satin finished, with a beveled spine and squidgey bit under the ricasso, and a hand-finished fuller. The simple oval guard is black G10, and the frame handle underneath the carbon fiber lace is carbon fiber, as well.

    In order to break up the monochromatic appearance, I elected to use a pair of superb 'sakura' or cherry blossom menuki in gold plated sterling silver, and I think they push the knife right over the top.

    Thanks for looking!

    It has a timeworn look to it, almost like ‘grand dad’s’ well used pocket knife, as though it was cut down from a longer, broken blade ... if grandad was a samurai.

    Cool knife.
