We designed the Woodsman after a one-off we did that seemed popular. We took that knife and and old scalping knive from yesteryear and melded the two. Its 10.5" long. 5" handle. We typically grind them from 5/32" thick steel. This knife has been reviewed on Woodsmonkey, this time by Garrett Lucas, and the review can be found here. Garrett threw eveything at this knife (chopping, splitting logs, cooking, etc.) so rest assured that the Woodsman will meet your camping needs.
