Description: This is Jon's trademark style knife, though every one is entirely unique. Excellent fit and finish. The three finger knife was initially designed for horsemen: the short design won't dig into a saddle or the horse. The apple seed grind is particularly good for edge retention. The edge hardened blade gives similar strength and edge holding to that achieved using the traditional Japanese clay hardening technique. The resulting blade as a softer, supportive spine, and an ultra-hard, razor sharp edge that won't quit.
