I think that the combination on this knife is superb.
The handle really looks like it will just lock into the hand!
Thanks for the pics!

Peter they are beyond expectations, now I can't wait until they come out!!! No sleep until then!!!! Looks like the best design so far!!!! Thanks for the (drool) pictures! :P

How's the balance of the sheaths hanging from the neck?

Peter Atwood said...

Slightly canted but not enough to affect removal of the knife in any way.

Rick said...

Perfect, thank you! It might actually make for easier removal. :)

Peter Atwood said...

Honestly it's nearly straight, just slightly off. I was surprised myself because I expected it to hang a little funny but to my delight I find that it's totally fine. I think the weight of the knife is balancing it out.

I can't wait for this knife/tool! Hopefully, I will be able to grab one before they are sold out!

It's interesting to see something go from concept to production.

Thanks again Peter!

WOW! Fixers look great. It's like an atwrench with an attitue problem! What a handy piece to have around your neck. Congrats on another super design.

These look great! Couple of questions - what's the overall length, and what keeps the knife in the sheath if it's hung from the neck? Thanks! :) Fingers crossed again...

Peter Atwood said...

Laurie, there is plenty holding it in the sheath between the first finger groove, the top finger scallops and the hex hole all acting to grip the knife. It's quite secure.

OAL= 3 3/8".

The ability for destruction and construction in one convenient little package.

Peter - if you see a spike in traffic its probably because you got featured on Boing Boing gadgets

also will there be any metric versions?

Peter Atwood said...

Thank you for the head's up!

I have no metric ones right now but there could be some in the future if I make more. We shall see...
