Jon Mcnees is an avid Outdoorsman and like myself – proud to be a United Stated Marine!  He is now more well known for his Custom Folding Knives but for several years he created hand made Outdoor and Survival knives with ergonomic handles and efficient blade designs.   

You can see a Review of Jon’s PSK in the FEB 2012 Knives Illustrated magazine


 Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a direct Dealer for Mcnees Custom Knives

Jon’s popularity exploded when he started making Custom Folders and he now makes VERY FEW Fixed blades each year ~ I suspect that Jon will Never make another Custom Camp Knife like this one! 

This is without a doubt the Largest Fixed Blade that Jon has ever made, Bulit to be the Ultimate Camp Knife or BOB blade ~ Extremely tough, able to leap tall buildings with….. well ~ you get the idea.  

This knife was definitely too large for my lightbox so forgive the strange angles and the split up pictures.


 This is a Full Tang Monster, whether you want to chop down a Sapling with a single blow, or lop off the arm of a Zombie ~ this is the blade for the Task!

Starting with a Massive Stock Thickness of .245, Jon gave the 1095 Blade a Full Height Flat Grind for Maximum Edge Strength.  The blade is a Full 2  1/4″ WIDE and the blade shows a clearly Defined Hamon that is evidence of the expert Differential Heat Treat that Jon gives to his knives.


The Black G-10 Handle scales have been Custom contoured for a positive grip and Jon has added thick Maroon G-10 Liners underneath for a comfortable, secure grip.


 Jon also gave this one some Thumb Ridges on the spine in just the right area for a more secure forward grip.


Jon expertly custom molds his Kydex sheaths and this one has a Ball Chain for neck carry.  


An incredible value for this tough, hand made knife. 

This knife is preowned but never used, carried or sharpened.  The Blade does have some surface scratches due to the Kydex Sheath.
