Mr. Chubbs SUSale

Alright, I've tortured you guys long enough. :D

I have just 6 of these prototype knives available. They are made of CPM S30v steel with a heavy raw bar finish and are chisel ground. The thickness is .170, so they are thicker than 5/32 but thinner than 3/16. The ring hole is 1 inch in diameter, width is 1.25 and length is 3.5 inches. The center hex is 5/16 and is there mostly to aid in sheath retention and to provide a convenient pivot point when manipulating the knife. This is a really neat little blade, short and fat.

It is unlikely that I will do a run of these as you see them here. I have already cut a couple of samples with a deeper and more rounded finger groove area and that would more likely be the design that I would go with if I make a full batch. A full run of them would be V ground on CNC equipment. Now, I'm pretty sure I will be making these but I have another keychain knife design that I am considering as well. Who knows, maybe I'll end up doing both of them this year.

Anyway, these hand ground protos will be $150 each plus shipping. The Sign Up Sale will run until 9PM eastern time tonight, Tuesday May 11th. One entry per person please, duplicate entries will be discarded. As always, thanks for your interest!

Sale is over, thanks to all who signed up!

Awesome! I'm a big knife person and have always just tried to tell myself that there are plenty of good makers to turn to, but there's just something irresistible about Atwood's designs (whether sharp and pointy or not) and this one's no exception.
