This is a pair of Josh Clarke's "BTC" model (Bird, Trout and Caping) . Knife. They are the last of these I for a while . They have been hard for me to keep on hand.
The design is a very slim drop point useful for everything from detail caping , filleting fish or cleaning birds and small game. It's also just a great little EDC or camp knife.

The handle design is a classic birdshead with a nice oval handle cross section. At about 3.5.ounces, the knife and sheath combo disappears on your belt. A very handsome and usefull little knife.

The dimensions are 7.9 " overall length with a 3.75" The blade that is thinly flat ground ground from .100" thick 1095 stock. Heat treat at 58-59 RC.- sharp as h*ll and holds the edge nicely, yet easy to sharpen. It is deeply marked with Josh's "Broadsword" maker's stamp.

The Fancy airdried scales were hand picked from Josh's wood inventory . They are multicolored Bastogne Walnut Burl (top knive) and Dark "Hawken Brown" stained Curly Maple (bottom). The pics DO NOT do these scales justice- they are gorgeous.

They are all attached with hand set brass pins and lanyard tube epoxied with Brownell's Acraglass.Then they are finished in Josh's shop blend of Tung oil and Spar varnish for a velvety, yet tough finish. Also included is one of his beautifull hand stiched pouch sheaths.

These little knives make all around blades.

My price is $95 ,plus $10 shipping. PayPal or USPS MO as paymwnt. Thanks.
