Love the Mt. Kineo!!! 
That knife looks really comfortable to use. I might dream up a similar idea for flake knives....🤔

Do you think that it might also work with a type such as a Savannah River? On a side note, I have noticed that you (I think you mentioned it a liittle while ago in a post of yours), Cresson, and Callahan all have an education in the arts.

I encourage each of you to experiment toward materializing your ideas.  Knapping poses its own challenges and it's wonderful to find satisfaction in this distinguished craft.  A subsequent phase is to find ways to put the tools we make to work and experience their manifold purposes - another realm of satisfaction in itself, built upon the first.

Thanks, but if I had one where would the blade go?
it can stay where it is. you aren't one of those carpenters who throw the nails away that have the heads on the wrong end, are you?  you're supposed to save those for the other side.
Those are called Aggie Nails!
