Made and designed by myself (Andy Wood), I am offering a new take on a hollow handle system for knives. My unique design offers (but is not limited to) a full tang which also includes an intergral tube containing a ferro rod, which can be used in conjunction with the spine of the knife, for lighting fires. 

The handle is not limited to storing a ferro rod though, which can easily be removed, and this allows for the storage of any items that may fit inside. Tinder or diamond sharpening rod, etc. Any items stored in the handle are protected from the environment, by a water and air tight seal provided by a rubber 'O' ring. I offer two types of thread for the butt cap. Quick release which only requires half a turn for access to the handle, or full thread.

The ferro rod is threaded for easy replacement. The inside of the butt cap is hollow, and this can be used to store magnesium filings, cotton wool, etc, to be used as tinder. The contents of the butt cap are protected in the same way the handle is, with a rubber 'O' ring.

Offering an integral hollow handle that also retains a full tang gives me a lot of freedom with design and materials that I can use when making my knives, whether the tang is tapered, stick, skeleton etc, my design will work with all of them. I have a patent pending on my design.

By tapering the tang I can also move the balance of the knife further forward should that be required. With the additional removal of material from the tang I can also offer even more bias to the blade.


Jonathan Deval put together a very comprehensive series of tests and tasks for the knife pictured above and made an excellent review.
