It’s Ironic that I stopped by today. I just can’t resist this post…

My dream Scrap Yard blade would still be one that’s been talked about from time to time in the past. It would be based off of the Busse Combat Paul's Hatchet and Swamp Rat Ratchet, except with a longer blade that curves upward to a point. I envision the blade being at least twice to length of the Hatchet/Ratchet. I think that would be an Epic addition to the SYKCO lineup. And I would definitely be in for a couple or more of these.

Other than that I still think the Dog Father and S6 are the two best blades that Scrap Yard has ever offered.


Its good you haven't given this much thought LOL

Very interesting

Thanks
Dan

I'm a big fan of the WSK style, including the TBT. But, it would definitely be interesting how this design would stack up to other WSK's. cool

That hatchet would be epic. Like a Tom Brown Tracker...but useful! whistle grin

I have three dream knives :

BUSHDOG... (the small survival knife you can always have)

4” Drop Point FFG No Choil
.125” Thick SR101
Convex Edge
RES-C Mudder Grip with small bottom safety tang (just big enough to index your finger but small enough to “straddle” if you want to choke the blade).

DEVIL DOG... (the general purpose knife that can “do it all” from combat to survival to camping / trail blazing)

7” Modifed Drop (think NMSFNO shape) SUPER HIGH SABER with dropped metal tang (talon hole without a hole)
.25” SR101
V Grind
RES-C 711 Type Handle

DOG CHAIN (aptly named because it would replace my chain saw)

10” FBM profile SUPER HIGH SABER
.277” SR101
V Grind
RES-C Fusion Handle

All knives would have the following features:

A) the spine would be max thickness for the max distance from handle to tip for axial strength.

B) all spines would have “eased” (radius) edges EXCEPT for a 1.25” section of 90 degree edge on ONE SIDE near the handle for fire steel striking.

C) SMOOTH coating (not the rough or textured type).

D) two factory grind options:

D1) standard Busse obtuse grind for abuse
D2) fine grind for slicing work ... this can include a warranty clause indicating chipped or rolled edges wouldn’t be covered.

Lastly...a skinny, mini- Ash!


How skinny for the ASH
