The half-whittler knife is a pattern most commonly associated with Case knives. The term half-whittler is a debated namenclature for this particular pattern. It’s basically a 2-bladed knife where both blades pivot on a single backspring. This is a nice every day carrying pocket knife. It lends itself well to capentery jobs and general use. Blade configurations vary but most commonly seen with a clip and pen blade. It is sometimes seen with a wharncliffe and pen blade combination.
This is a new pattern for me and what’s pictured here is my first prototype. My pattern has a master clip blade with my coping style Razorbeak. The bolsters are intentionally assymetric and resememble copperhead and canoes. I take pride in exploring new boundaries in knife patterns and blade design.
