B.U.K. Series Knives by Neilson's Mountain Hollow

This page is devoted to the basic, no-nonsense knife in it's many varieties. All of these pieces are normally done with synthetic handles, satin finishes and Kydex sheaths with my removable/reversible belt loop.... normally. Of course, anything is possible. These knives make great EDC knives, Hunters, back-up knives... just great all around users.


"B.U.K.-Plus" in Ball-bearing Damascus

This is my standard B.U.K pattern (forged approx. 1/8" thick, 6" overall with a 2 3/4" cutting edge) but, is forged from my Ball-bearing damascus, which I forge from 1/4" 52100 ball-bearings and 1095 powdered steel done in a canister weld. The handle scales are Black G-10 with a stainless steel pin and lanyard liner (acting as the second pin). This knife comes with a with a molded Kydex sheath with a removable/reversible belt loop. This allows the knife to be carried on the right or left side...or remove the belt loop altogether for pocket or (adding a cord/chain) neck carry.

Price for a similar piece, with Kydex sheath: $650.00
