The First of the New Tools

This pair was inspired by an older Peter Atwood design that he called the KeyCutters. Each tool is completely handmade and ground, and so the specs vary slightly for each. As a general guideline though, for both of these, the blade lengths are just a hair under 1 inch with the tools being 2 13/16" long overall. Both of these are very sharp, and the bottleopener should only be utilized when the tool is sheathed. Both are made from heattreated CPM S30V, and the sheaths are kydex. I haven't thought up proper/formal names for these yet, though I do think they resemble the Minnow and Pryranha tools with blades instead of the pryends. If I can't come up with something good, I may hold a contest to try to name them:) I will try to put these up for sale on the website tonight, after doing some reorganizing.
