Well, it's kind of new! This is the newest version of the Mytuko Major I did several years back that have been sold out. I made quite few changes based on my own ideas and customer feedback.
These knives are designed as a robust all purpose field knife that still works well in the camp or holiday kitchen.
1. I eliminated the large lanyard ring and redesigned the grip to better fit the hand. I did retain a 6mm lanyard hole.
2. Blade profile has been refined for better performance but the main thing is the new, duplex grind. The left side is flat ground while the right side has a deep hollow grind. These first prototype blades are hand ground by me in my shop, they are not machine ground. The final edge is about 0.4mm before sharpening which gives good cutting performance while being robust enough for field use. The grind on these knives is most suited for right handed users.
Please keep in mind, the pics show the same knife, the blade has a Duplex Grind!
ONLY one knife with sheath left in stock, blade is marked with my logo on one side and "design prototype" on the other side.
