The Grimalkin is an ultra portable, robust knife meant to take care of every task you would encounter in the wilderness. This knife comes with a very sturdy HDPE sheath and is a great workhorse of a blade on it's own but this knife is a great project for yourself, your child, or your spouse. The handle comes bare so you can choose how you want to wrap it (leather, paracord, etc...) or you can make your own scales for it. Making this knife a sheath is a great project to learn the skill of leather work.
The Grimalkin is an awesome knife as is and it is an awesome knife to make your own!

This knife's steel is absolutely fantastic. Holds and edge amazingly well and is not too challenging to sharpen. The ability to customize the knife is similiar to the ESEE izula but a fraction of the cost, and I actually prefer the hole designs. I've only had it a bit now, but have been using it often. It's performed flawlessly. The shape of the knife and handle are perfect for skinning/smaller tasks. I have pretty big hands, so it fits in my first three fingers but my pinky remains off. For a little extra grip I'm going to be making a 3d printed handle to see how that holds up. If no luck, I'll be making some wooden scales and attaching those. I should also mention that I plan on buying another as soon as they're available again! I want to make one a paracord handled neck knife!
