This is the stoutest (thickest) knife we have ever made. The strength of this 3/8" thick piece of 5160 spring steel is awesome. It is a full tang, covered with Tan Canvas Micarta handle scales.

As the name implies, the 'Lil Roughneck' is very much like the hearty guys who do the hard and heavy work on the oil rigs. The term Roughneck is now a commonly-known term associated with rough and tumble guys.

The Roughnecks are of strong resolve, hardworking, and they 'Keep on Truckin.' With this in mind... this is definitely a specialty knife for a special guy.

Lil Roughneck Works
I am a public utility Communications technician.
I use a knife everyday for opening boxes, stripping cable insulation, preparing coxial cable for connector installations and even cutting back unwanted brush growth at rural communication sites.
I bought the Lil Roughneck to add to my knife collection as a unusual knife due to its heavy short build. It is a conversation piece for sure!
I didn't really think it would function well for daily use due to its blade geometry and short length.
I was suprised how well it does cut and how it holds an edge.
I learned that you have to modify how you cut with it, using a twist of your wrist
while cutting in to heavy material. This is not a chopper....
This is my EDC knife now and the short size makes this knife socially acceptable in all the work settings that I visit; including offices, dispatch centers and high security management areas.
Thank you Leo for designing the Lil Roughneck.... it really does work!!
