Overview
The spear point woodcraft/survival knife has many subtle design elements to enhance its performance.  Things like a thin flat grind with a convex edge, hand checkered blade spine/but useful for magnesium firestarters and notching wood, and exposed butt useful for Firesteel striking or scraping.  Blocky orange G10 handle with black liners is more secure in wet conditions than a more rounded handle and doesn't cramp your hand after long use. Blade is heat treated to 59RC, 0.099" thick, and 1.199" deep. Comes with vegetable oil tanned and waterproofed leather sheath and info sheet signed by the maker. New from  maker.

ABOUT THE MAKER
Bolden, Joel
I was born on July 16th, 1944 in Lackawanna, NY (just south of Buffalo). I joined the Navy in Feb. 1962 and retired as a Senior Chief Petty Officer (E-8) on April 30th, 1984. I spent most of my career overseas and/or riding fast attack subs.We lived in the country, and I worked summers on my cousin's farm in North Collins, NY. Everybody in the family hunted, fished, camped, etc. My father ran a small gun business for a while. He was an avid collector of any kind of weapon. I had my first knife at six years old (Imperial Kamp King - faux Boy Scout knife). I grew up reading Kephart, Nessmuk, Olson, etc.I started making knives in 1996. I started with old Sandvik files and did them almost entirely by hand. I discovered Bob Engnath a couple years before he died, and started buying stainless blades from him. I eventually bought a small 1" x 30" grinder and started grinding 440C and ATS-34, mainly. I moved on to a Sears 2" x 42" grinder and ran that for eight years until buying a KMG a couple years ago. I still have all three and use them all.I build all kinds of different designs; some are mine and some are old, historical patterns done in modern steels/materials. I work mainly in D-2 and 154CM, but also use S-30V and BG-42 (when I can get some). I use all sorts of handle materials. Now that I'm retired, I have more time to devote to making knives. I do take orders, normally only for my own designs, but I prefer to build and sell my own."
