Warfighter utility/EDC

It's a bit on the large side for an EDC, but a size that's handy and capable of a variety of tasks. The overall length is 9 3/4", the blade (including the choil) is 5 1/4", and the weight is 9.92 ounces. The spine is 1/4" thick and tapers distally to the point. This is a wide, stout little blade.

It's forged from 5160, triple normalized, triple hardened in canola oil, and triple tempered. The handle is olive drab Micarta with flared stainless steel tube rivets.

The sheath is olive drab Micarta. This is the first Teklok I've used on a sheath. I think I like it. :) I like having the option of wearing it vertically or horizontally, and the adjustability to several different belt sizes is a great feature too.

I initally was making this one for myself, but think I will put it up for sale instead. I could use some cash flow. :)
