    Daily Carry in Az

    Rob Patton Custom
    5 inch cutting edge/5.5 inch blade of L6, differentially heat treated

    Carried in open top belt sheath from Patton. Used daily for all sorts of chores around the corral and while hiking in the Superstition Mountains where I'm on Search and Rescue.

    Nice knife. Looks too as tho the finger groove positions are idea for a reliable and firm hold.

    P95;

    It's a good working knife, I keep it razor sharp [ sharpened almost daily whenever it is used ], and it serves double duty as a defensive knife for me.

    Thanks for the thoughts.

    I don't recognize the handle/grip material...What is it, if I may ask?

    Does it grip well if wet?


    The weapon looks like good craftsmenship...thank you for sharing.

    Ironwood Burl.

    The wood is smooth and polished but it stays in the hand easily when the hand sweats, probably more to design than anything else.

    Ironwood is tough stuff, I soak this one in mineral oil about once a month due to the hot, dry desert heat it sees 10 months a year.

    Here's Robs site, I have trained with him at Keatings Riddle of Steel up on the Snake River, thats where I first saw his talent. He knows how to make em well, as he is a user of them both daily and for defense.

    Ya, I agree with you about the thumb-studs. In fact, I never use them because of the Carson flipper - which is awesome.

    I ended up with the single-bevel edge and, while I like that one a little more I do have to remember which hand it's in.

    Anyways, don't want to hijack your high-quality blade thread - I was just feeling a bit inadequate and thought I'd put my economical .02 in :)
