SSKMSCOUT: Custom Mini Scout Fixed Blade, Ironwood Burl
Shane Sibert Custom Knives
You may know Shane Sibert from his collaboration with Benchmade on the Arvensis fixed blade, as well as the Adamas models, but it was the MPR or Mini Pocket Rocket that put him on the map. Shane turned full-time custom knifemaker in 2004 and the MPR was the first folding collab with the famed production knife company. What we have here is more Shane's style... a fixed blade. He builds more folders nowadays but in the past, your main Sibert Knives were fixed blades.
The Mini Scout is a beautiful handmade hunting/survival knife. It's utilitarian, robust, ergonomic, extremely capable, and some might say over the top beautiful. This model is manufactured from CPM-S30V stainless steel with a bright hand rubbed satin finish, ironwood burl scales, red G10 spacers, brass piping and finger guard, and a Paul Long black leather sheath. The jimping on the thumb ramp is perfectly executed so you can bear down on this blade with confidence and the classic clip point shape allows for precise tip-control and good versatility. Proudly handmade in the USA.
