The Compact Kephart Knife is a compact version of the legendary Kephart knife. Originally designed by Horace Kephart, one of the Fathers of the Smoky Mountains and celebrated author and classic camper, it's about as classic as a knife can get. This scaled down version has a 2.57" blade with a three-inch handle and a full grain leather sheath.
