Mountain Knife in A2 and Black/Toxic micarta

Think you’re ready for the Zombie Apocalypse? I know someone who will be!
This Mountain Knife is 110% size, 5/32″ of A2 tool steel, sporting double-black linen micarta over toxic G10 liners. While it’s not a long knife at 3.75″ of blade, it’s nearly 1.5″ wide at the plunge, and very solid in the hand.

Quench-Finish Harpoon Survival Knife in 1084

This knife was a collaborative effort with my 17yo cousin, who picked the pattern and assisted in profiling and heat-treating over the holidays, for his 18th birthday present. 5.125″ harpoon blade, as-quenched, fully hardened halfway down the tang, then differentially tempered for a super-tough blade, with an edge at ~60HRc. Bolster is brass from the E/V Nautilus original rudder bearing assembly, replaced in 2013.
