The Tahoma Field Knife is designed to provide anything the outdoor professional would need in a knife.

"My load out for my camera is sometimes 45 lbs, and that's not including any food or equipment for my-self to keep me alive. Designing a knife that would keep my weight down to a minimum and comfortable for all day use was really the goal." said Andy.

His background in tinkering, and fundamental knowledge of physics and human movement was the foundation and basis of development for the Tahoma Field Knife.

The notch on the spine of the blade is used for scoring materials to create a weak point to break, as well as break wire by work hardening it, and pulling pots and similar items out of a fire. The thumb ramp has a hole in it for a forward wrist lanyard popular in cutting contests as well as to aid in lashing the knife to the end of a stick to make a spear. The finger choil makes bringing the hand closer to the blade possible for fine carving tasks. The choil also creates a secondary "tip" for carving or notching. The overall shape of the handle is made for ergonomics and to give the user a better grasp like on a machete. Dual spindle sockets for a bow drill make it safe to use left or right hand operation. On the pommel of the knife is a pry bar, shaped and positioned so that if given a backseat grip on the knife during chopping, it would not cut, or wear into your hand. Every feature is integrated into the knife to work with each other, as well as be instinctual to the user so that it feels like an extension of the body.

Whether you're in the field collecting specimens, or in the field defending freedom, the Tahoma Field Knife is a reliable companion in an uncertain world.

starsit chops with little effort, also performed very well doing tasks like making feather sticks

I'll keep it short and simple...I've only had the Tahoma for a few days now but from the field testing I've done it is proving to be an outstanding knife. The only thing I didn't care for was the color of the micarta scales, I dyed them black using RIT, they took the color very well...I used two packages and approximately about two quarts of water. The knife is very well balanced, it chops with little effort but it also performed very well doing tasks like making feather sticks. I haven't used the spindle point yet for a bow drill, one thing I would recommend is sheathing the blade when attempting the bow drill...the blade is super sharp out of the box. I ordered my Tahoma with the secondary edge sharpened, I had no issues with this feature while batoning. My test for the wire/bone feature in the spine was to leave the knife outside in single digit temps overnight and then baton with it. I know many people are hesitant about this feature. The following morning I used the knife to baton through an old oak stall board...the knife performed flawlessly. This is an extreme test, but if you're relying on a knife you need it to perform in extreme conditions. I batoned through six lengths of this old rock hard oak and the Tahoma handled it easily. I hope this helps if anyone would decide against this knife because of the wire/bone/pot holder feature, I found it isn't an issue after my own initial concerns. One more mention about these oak stall boards and how dense and hard they are, you couldn't drive a nail through them if your life depended on it...they're like iron. I gave the Tahoma five stars because it warranted that rating, you won't be disappointed with this knife. I will however be making a kydex sheath for my Tahoma, but I do that for every field knife I own.
