Strig asked for a post on the creation of the PR4. Happy to oblige and here it goes: Shortly after we started the Camplore line Jeff asked me to design a knife. I told him I wasn't a designer by any means. He said something that you would carry as an everyday woods knife. I have always loved the simplicity of the Kephart design. I told him everyone was doing them, but they didn't have Shon's mythical heat treat and our warranty. So I went home and began some child like sketches! I knew I wanted a four inch blade, 1/8" thick with a 90 degree spine and uncoated. So here is the final. Jeff and Mike approved and suggested I get James Gibson to make me a prototype. I wanted to use it and make sure I was happy with it before it went into production. I sent James a copy of the terrible drawing and about a week later he shows up to teach a Bushcraft class and hands me this! I used the prototype on a daily basis for about two years for everything from trap construction to field dressing various animals. I had never tried a knife with scales textured like this and wanted to make sure it didn't cause me any problems, and it didn't. We then sent it Shon to work his magic. At first I didn't know if we would be able to keep the scales the same without driving cost up. But when he started sending me pics of it, I knew he had nailed it! It's been a while since I have posted pics on here and I'm a little slow.
