The Knife shown above has been sold. If you like the design, don’t worry! A similar knife can be hand-crafted upon request!
The Summiter was the first in my Operator Series of knives stemming from my desire to create an extremely versatile and comfortable knife while maintaining the rugged durability needed in a good camp / survival knife.
This knife hails largely to its Nepali Khukuri influence. A steeper forward curve in the blade allows for more cutting power, naturally allowing the intended object(s) to slide right into the sweet-spot of the blade. The wider blade and full 1/4inch-thick spine allows for greater versatility than the previous versions. The ergonomic design lets you comfortably choke up tight on the blade for precision applications or grip it back further for greater chopping power. The end of the handle can be used as a pry-bar, large, flat-head screwdriver, or just a solid pommel for hammering.
As most knives in the Operator Series, the Summiter comes with the Operator Sheath. This sheath is designed for maximum versatility in carry options. As always, my sheaths are hand-stitched and sealed for water resistance.

– To Be, Rather Than to Seem –
The Operator Series is the culmination of my drive to build a series of knives that just plain work. The ergonomics are designed to maximize comfort and usability in a variety of grip positions. The primary difference between the knives in this series is only their size. Each model features very similar ergonomics and balance.
Much of the evolution of this series has come from the feedback of actual military and PSS Operators who have used these blades in the field. Whether your a member of the armed services or just an avid hunter or outdoorsman…these knives will be an indispensable part of your gear!
