This is a rather massive knife that I made with field/survival/combat use in mind.  The tang is only mildly tapered, to preserve strength for prying or hammering with the butt.  The knife has a full-height convex grind as well as a convex distal taper, striking a balance between cutting performance and strength.  The raised clip is brought to a soft apex, meaning it isn't actually sharpened, but will backcut with ease, especially with the birds head pommel facilitating snap cuts.  The handle is a G10/micarta laminate with three .315" copper corby bolts, four .125" copper pins, and one .315" copper tube, sealed with West System G/flex epoxy.  The sheath is .125" thick Boltaron and has very strong retention.  I have used this .125" material to sheathe several of my personal knives, but this is the first time I have used it to sheathe a knife that I am selling.
