The Ardmore is Gaelic for a great height, just the place you'll want to take your new forged Darkside knife. (Alternatively handy when get something off a high shelf and a few extra inches can help.) I like the name, so I'm done explaining.
This design has been around for about a year, and by "around" I mean around my waist as my personal EDC. I wanted to use a new forge texturing idea I had on this knife, and here are the first two knives to show it off. The blades have been left slightly thicker than previous Darkside knives for a fuller grip, while the edges have been hollow ground very thin for easy, aggressive cutting. Blade is 3.25" with an overall of 7.5"
Laminated blades are 410 stainless with a 52100 core and are $400 each. Damascus blades are 100 layers of 80CRV2, 52100 and 15N20 and are $450 each.
The sheath is my standard leather-over-kydex multi-carry sheath which can carry vertical, horizontal or as a neck knife.
