Anyone else think the blade in these pics has had some photoshop done to it? I am a retoucher and there are some tell-tale signs of cleaning something up. Especial right at the area where the "flipper" tab by the choil is. Where there should be a pretty clear defined grind line going up towards the spine of the blade...it looks very soft and has some signs that it was retouched along there...as well as the uniformity in what should be more reflective metal of the blade steel itself. Something is off about it as well as the sharpened edge...it has a weird transition to the grind and looks like its all been filled in and blurred somehow....anyhow, the blade itself looks strange and I dont think its due to being a convex primary grind. just thinking outloud here.

whats the handle thickness? sort of on the fence, if i wasn't saving up for a bark river. also none of these photos show the convex really well. it looks more like a hastily done full flat grind =(

What in the world is "golden ebony"? Sounds made up...

You learn something new every day! I’ve got quite a bit of Macassar Ebony on hand and am a big fan of it and had no idea it was sometimes called “Golden Ebony” until you wrote that and I saw an article at Cook Wood about it. Thanks for the info!

Bit of an exotic wood guy myself, don't have any macassar this light but it's a great wood for less dramatic fretboards and bowties. I could see it being a great choice for scales with that density and water resistance - bet the coloration let them get it pretty cheap. Still gorgeous in my opinion!

This is nice. A no brainer for anyone looking for a good outdoor camp knife. The basic design is appealing. The handle has no sharp edges or finger grooves, perfect length, convex grind is rare to find at this price point and definitely a bonus.. Not stupid thick. Bohler D2 is a great steel with a decent heat treat. Get rid of the silly little guard though. I suppose you could argue its good for a beginner but I like to be able to have my grip as close to the cutting edge as possible. I would choose this over the equivalent sized ESEE because I find their 1095 too soft. My only issue is I already have numerous higher end knives in this size bracket and need an excuse to not buy another knife.

Well, it's got to be said... This is one good-looking knife. Nothing overly complicated, but nothing outright lazy. I like both choices in materials for edge-retention/sharpening and general maintenance. My D2 stuff will usually get a steel wool and light oil coat every now and then and never stain. Curious what the finish is on the handle, but ebony is a delight to work with as it takes to most oil finishes without much change in tone as well as resisting all but the hardest impacts. That minimalist logo too...

A flipper tab on a fixed blade? Now it's gone too far!

I was trying to be funny, but thanks for the explanation. Interesting concept, but I suspect it would be more useful on a larger fixed blade like a machete. That's if my assumption is correct - that you would tie a lanyard from the choil area to the end of the handle to keep the knife from flying out of your hand during chopping or slashing.

Exactly, a lanyard or leather belt can be attached very tightly in this case to give that extra security in the hand. With that in place you could go to town on large logs or branches.

For those who don’t know, K110 is considered D2 tool steel. It’s a high quality steel on the spectrum of D2

Mora as in Morakniv? I have one of those for camping/hunting already. The heavy duty one. I use it to quarter game and cut cordage and oddball stuff. Pretty nice for 20bux.

Yep, they're pretty unbeatable and are light enough to make a fantastic spare knife.
