Original Hiker Rescue

This is the original 100% Hiker with a new handle. It was a year-1 knife, and although so much of it was right (first blade to actually split hair!), I over-tapered the front of the scales, which made it nearly unusable. Here it is with new G10 scales in my current simple-is-better contour. I fixed a couple other rookie issues in the process, but then managed to goof up the middle hole in the scales! The nested tube/pin in the center is a reminder that you can only revise history so far…
Anyway, all it needs now is a sheath so I can take it out and get it dirty.

4.25″ handle, black/orange G10
3.4″ blade of 1/8″ A2 @1000 grit
