This is a beautiful fixed blade pocket knife that has become the most ordered blade on the site. The knife is 6 1/2" with a 3" x 5/8" carbon steel blade. This knife was named after a desert quail, the Scaley, because the blade reminded me of a cactus spine. The blade has a little flex to it, making it great for breasting those upland birds, or general day to day chores..
I can make the shorter style for women and youths.

My wife gave me multiple pocket knives over the first couple of years of our marriage. As with most pocket knives, they were lockback folders. I just could not seem to hold onto them. Every time I did a small job, I would lay the knife down between steps, rather than fold it up and replace it in my pocket. When the job was done I would forget the knife on the back bumper, over turned canoe, or ground and it would be lost forever. Finally I received a fixed blade pocket knife in a stiff sheath that fit in my back pocket. I have carried that knife for 24 years. Removing the folding and unfolding step made slipping it back into the sheath easy. It has taken me three years to find the knife blank that is of the appropriate dimension. I think you will enjoy carrying and using this knife. Each knife comes with the stiff back pocket sheath.
