    Rubber handle comes of easily . Drill the tube out and it pulls off

    I like the shape of the handle and the craftmanship but the material used lets it down in my personal opinion

    Urban bushcraft design?

    I wonder if somebody has tried to change the blade profile of the F1? Thin it out a bit?

    A great improvement on the functional but slightly boring original, I like that a lot.

    Came past yours last Thursday on the way to Tollard, didn't want to cold call and couldn't get you on the phone. Be up again soon, be good to pop in and see what you've invented :)
