    I'll put up another pic or two later, but here's the latest LIT Knife (Lightweight Incendiary, Tinder), so named because there is a large ferro rod in the buttcap and just enough room for some tinder in the hollow handle.

    This is a cool design. Looks really comfortable for carving.

    Super beautiful Sam.
    Look forward to more pics, also from the inside of the cap.
    Is the wood inserts in the sheath (looks a bit like that imho)? Or only leather?

    Thank you! It feels very much like a "regular" knife.

    Thank you! Yes, it has a wood insert in the sheath for form.

    Thanks, bud!

    I didn't add any sawback on this model only because I knew the absence of sawteeth would drop me further down on some gov watchlists due to how their algorithms work. Big brain stuff.

    As promised, here are the rest of the pics of the latest LIT Knife, Lightweight Incendiary, Tinder.

    [​IMG]

    The micarta sleeve has an ovoid shape, and feels very much like a traditional knife in the hand. The ferro rod provides the Incendiary part, and there is just enough room in the handle to put some tinder.

    [​IMG]

    I do a hollow grind on a larger wheel on these for greater cutting aggression, and the brass ferrule gives a more traditional look and feel.

    Thanks for looking!
