Primal/tactical snake killer o-tanto

 This one was forged for the Blade Show, but came back to Texas with me.  It ended up going to a customer who has bad luck with poisonous snakes, and when he saw pictures said it would be perfect for the inevitable ophidian encounters whenever he is outdoors.

It's forged from 5160, with a blade 12" long.  The handle is two layers of paracord over leather, all impregnated with marine epoxy.

The Kydex sheath has slots for straps, allowing a quasi-traditional horizontal carry on a belt.

I also shot a little cutting video before it left the shop.
