Our Great Plainsman will be your go to, every day carry knife. Larger than the patriot in both handle and cutting edge, the Great Plainsman is a sidekick you can count on. Overall length is 6.5” inches with a cutting edge of 2.75”. We use 1/8” D2 on these knives for its semi-stainless, less to worry about attributes and its great edge holding ability. The saber grind gives it plenty of stoutness behind the grind and we also keep the primary edge a sharpened convex for superior strength. I would not hesitate to baton this little terror through an appropriate sized log if needed. The forward positioned thumb ramp is a great feature that allows you to push cut and put that pressure a little closer to the middle of the cutting edge, as opposed to back by the front of the scales. This gives you a little more control and makes it a powerful cutter.
The Micarta scales are attached with brass pin stock and an industrial strength glue so the scales are held on with both a chemical seal and a mechanical element. This scale material is the best balance of durability, traction, and when polished up, a very high quality look. An oversized, brass lined lanyard tube rounds out the knife. Our sheaths are all made by hand at JRE Industries, a well known maker of leather products for almost a decade. A simple but sturdy belt loop gets the job done. You may also choose to skip the leather sheath and opt for a kydex one at an additional charge.
