Sorry - I saw one recently that was really similar and mistakingly assumed.

I think I know which one you're talking about. The one I'm thinking of was ffg and had spalted maple handle scales. After that one sold I emailed him to see if he had one similar with a max blade length of 5 1/2 inches. He sent me a few pics and I bought the knife.

Here's kinda similar design that Adam has. Made by Jeff White. Been very curious to check out a design like this and for $40 in 1095..why not?!

Thin stock. Doesn't start the convex until last 1/4" or so...so it will still be a strong knife and feels substantial.

Did well with veggies..very well on the softer ones like onion and green pepper.

I struggled a bit with the wood. But, it's hard/dry stuff and figure I need to find my way around the grind. See the hole I started? Tip feels plenty stout.

Few pics in hand. Good looking knife!

Seen him mentioned more on a couple bushcraft sites. Seems like a cool design to me! I like the size to.

Just buggered up the edge on my lansky and brought it back with the sharpmaker! Came kinda dull, but 5 minutes on the sharpmaker earlier put a nice edge on it. Thought I could really make it nasty with the lansky..not!

I own th Mora Bushcaft and for the Scandinavian style outdoorlife (worked there as an outdoor guide for a year) its awesome - especially if you consider the price here!
I am looking forward for the ESEE camp lore series...looks like versatile bushcraft knives to me...

For anyone that might be interested, there's an MO 511 for sale in the exchange. Good price and it has a sheath, too.
