Default New EDC knife

EDC means Every Day Carry for those not familiar with the term.

I have been carrying a small fixed blade for a couple years now and have gotten to prefer it over a folding knife. I made the knife and the sheath and have it set up to carry horizontally just to the left of the my belt buckle. Its pretty out of the way unless you need to lay on your stomach and for the most part even when I'm working under a truck I'm on my side or my back. Its much more comfortable than having a large folding knife in your pocket when you are sitting on a horse.

The original knife was just a straight steel handle with no scales, and I love how slim it is but sometimes in the winter its a little hard to grip with cold hands. Also the sheath set up doesn't work out very well once I start adding layers in the winter. So this is MKII

This knife is forged out of a leaf spring off a jeep. I apologize for not taking progress pics. The handle is made with natural linen micarta, which looks a little like osage orange but is a plastic and much more durable than wood. Did a little vine pattern filework on the spine, but I should have tightened the pattern up its a little rough.
