I am lucky enough to have what I understand is one of the original design models - it is obviously made from a bayonet!
It holds a great edge and is a real workhorse :)

I added a sugru guard but that is all I have changed!

It's hard to see the similarities with the bayonet and the modern knife although maybe the longer knife is more akin. Working all week I won't have any spare time until Sat.

It would be impossible to sharpen as a scandi grind without grinding the coating off. They may have initially sharpened this as a scandi grind but you will not be able to maintain it as one.

Well I say how I get on. The coating is Teflon and I guess as you sharpen the coating will come off at edge. I'll try to get better photos tomorrow I've been on the road all day.
