I was put on to this by Hardbark McLoughlin, who is as crazed about good knives as I am. It's the work of Owen B. Baker, Jr., who is a retired Air Force light colonel, and has been in the custom knife biz for eight years. His trademark is Bakr-Bilt Custom Knives and leather, and his work is immaculate. This utility-survival knife is called the Phantom. It's a drop-point made of 154-CM steel tempered to Rc58. A Rockwell of 58 is a little on the soft side for 154-CM, but Mr. Baker anticipates that you will be unkind to his knife, and softer stands up better than harder. It also makes the knife extremely easy to sharpen.
