Knowing my love for small fixed blades, Dave Bowen and I made a trade a while back which left me with this little gem. I didn't know much about it at the time, and I don't know a lot more about it now, other than what is on the website.
According to Nemesis Knives' website:
Blade: 2 5/8" (66.8mm)
OAL: 6" (152.4mm)
Weight: 3.1 oz. (87.9g)
Blade .125 (3.2mm) thick S30V Stainless
Scales: G10 with Worm-Hole Pattern
Sheath: Kydex with Beadchain and Tek-lok
An Arch Ally by your side...
Form an alliance with the Nemesis Knives Arch Ally and become united in a common cause!
The Arch Ally's flat ground S30V stainless blade provides the strength and utility of a full-tang fixed-blade in a convenient size that's comparable to many pocket knives. Made using powdered metal technology, Crucible's S30V is a premium specialty steel created especially for the cutlery industry. It's a clean, uniform stainless steel with reduced impurities and small carbides.
Not too large, the Arch Ally is a practical knife that is good for both everyday use and camping and hiking. It's unique "worm-hole" patterned G10 scales and thumb-ramp scallops provide both innovative design and improved traction and grip.
Configured for several belt or neck carry options, this handy knife comes with a Kydex scabbard, beadchain and Tek-lok.
Made in the U.S.A.
It's a nice little knife but
I never carry it because there seems to be no good way to
carry it. The Tek Lok makes the sheath far too bulky for such a small knife and the kydex itself doesn't really hold the knife all that well, so if you wore it as a neck knife, any sudden jolt will cause you to be out about $100. I meant to send it to Eric at On Scene to make a better sheath for it, but I just haven't gotten around to it. I'm not entirely certain I really want to go to the bother.
That having been said, the knife itself is exquisite. There isn't anything on the knife itself that isn't absolutely perfect, and the blade is thick enough that it should be able to take some abuse without suffering, yet thin enough that it still cuts- unlike some other knives I own that are really too thick to put an edge on.
I like this knife a lot, and maybe someday I'll get around to having a proper sheath done for it so I can see if it works as good as it looks!
