The Knife shown above has been sold. If you like the design, don’t worry! A similar knife can be hand-crafted upon request!
Named for the Chief God in the Greek pantheon, the Zeus is the second largest addition to the Operator Series and is a larger version of the Artemis design. The blade has been rough forged (the raw forging scale has been left in place along the ricasso and upper spine), and highlighted with my stunning Shark Skin Finish.
The beautiful cocobolo handle scales were cut to create a visually stunning color transition. The ergonomic design lets you comfortably choke up tight on the blade for precision applications or grip it back further for chopping or fighting. The exaggerated thumb ramp allows for a comfortable and controlled full forward extension and the flared pommel provides an excellent thumb and index-finger seat in a reverse grip. The end of the handle can be used as a pry-bar, large, flat-head screwdriver, or just a solid pommel for hammering.
The sheath for the Zeus is designed for a cross-draw and has been inlaid with the hide of an African Wildebeest! As always, my sheaths are hand-stitched and sealed for water resistance.

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!
