The Field Mouse is CPM154 steel with G-10 handle scales. It measure out at 7-3/8 inches overall, with a 3-1/4 inch blade. It weighs in at 4.5 oz.
“I wanted to make a running change on the FS1,” Mike explains. “The Field Mouse is basically the same knife with a drop point instead of a clip point. I think this is an excellent ‘everywhere’ knife, very sheeple-friendly. I considered calling it the ‘Church Picnic.’”
By any other name, the Field Mouse is definitely friendly to a mixed audience. It’s small enough not to be overtly threatening to people who get nervous around knives, yet not so small that it is not still a very handy utility knife. It shipped razor sharp and, despite its small size, very capably zipped through any of the small chores set for it. These included cutting small branches and furring them up to use for kindling, as well as mundane things like opening mail, cutting up recyclables, and even some limited prying and digging (which is abuse of any knife). It cuts like a champ. Its slim profile makes it a good small game and camp knife, while its small package and light weight would make it an ideal backpacking knife. You can tote this knife without ever feeling burdened by its presence.
Our Field Mouse is shipped with a beautiful leather sheath by Jose Trevino, which encloses the knife fully by friction (There are no retaining straps). There is a loop for a 3/8 inch ferro rod.
