River Knife

Studio II class at Walla Walla University. Our assignment for this class was to design an outdoors product. This project came to me from a friend who wanted a midsize fixed-blade knife for kayaking trips. Some of the features he wanted in it were a thick tip for prying or digging, a serrated edge and a plain edge, and a rubbery, textured grip.
