The parameters were simple, a Sheep’s Foot or Wharncliffe blade shape up to 8” in overall length. After drawings were submitted and votes were counted, The Sheep Creek came out victorious. Small enough for EDC yet big enough for camp, this design will be sure to find its way into your rotation.
The Sheep Creek has a flat grind that will prove worthy of light Bushcraft and camp tasks as well as food prep around the camp site. Made from 154CM Stainless Steel, this knife can withstand the harshest of elements. Named after the designer’s favorite camping area and located in Idaho’s Caribou-Targhee National Forest, Dylan would spend most of his summer vacations as a child camping and fishing in the area with family and friends. This knife pays homage to the countless memories made.

- Dylan knows how to design!!!
I went back and forth on buying this knife. I usually go with drop points and knives life the Silent Hero 4 or almost any Lionsteel fixed blade, but I am very happy about this purchase. I pulled off the scout carry straps and put an UltiClip on mine and it is unbelievably one of the most comfortable and discreet pocket carry fixed blades I own. I used to carry the Lionsteel B35 as my primary pocket knife, but this may be taking its place. The kydex is sleek in the pocket and the curved handle actually hugs your body.
The blade is great, sharp , plenty of beef behind the edge, and just an overall great do it almost all kinda blade. I have batoned with it, carved feather sticks, cut tons of cardboard, etc, etc, etc. My only regret with this knife is that I didn’t buy it sooner. (Posted on 1/11/2023)
