Designed by Tony Lennartz, the Bushcraft Bliss is a full tang fixed blade with a 4.8” 1075 carbon steel clip point blade with a bead blast finish. It has a blade thickness of 0.196” and a flat grind. The overall shape is not quite bowie but the swedged spine absolutely give that whole Bowie blade vibe. There’s some pretty impressive jimping along the thumb ramp and a fairly prominent integral finger guard.
The contoured micarta handle scales are about 4.5” long and feel simply fantastic in hand. It has a somewhat skinny neck and a palm swell that fits our hands just beautifully.
This knife comes with a Kydex sheath with a leather belt loop attachment. You can easily adjust the sheath for left-hand carry or scout carry with nothing more than a simple SAK. It has an overall length of 9.25”, and the knife and sheath combined weigh about 9.8 ounces.
