TDCMPESSIMIST: Custom Modified Pessimist Fixed Blade

Todd Begg Knives

Todd Begg is a custom knifemaker that needs no introduction. He's one of the premier tactical knife artists in our industry, director of the Knifemaker's Guild, and co-owner of Aegis Solutions EDCi. He's a busy man who builds knives where and when he can but he hopes that will change in the near future. Todd is looking to step up production of his handmade customs and the KnifeCenter is proud to be able to bring them to you.

The Pessimist is a combat fixed blade with an intimidating look, stellar ergonomics, and a slightly recurved cutting edge. Just like the Guerilla Combat, it features a double row sawback that is more show than substance but with its 7.375" cutting edge, you have more than enough slicing power to get any job done. It's a tactical knife for sure but also a great wilderness survival knife if you couldn't tell by the included black leather belt sheath. The handles are black canvas Micarta with excellent checkered texturing for grip, a small lanyard hole, and integral guard. Whether or not you choose to use the jimped thumb ramp, this knife is locked into your hand and is not going anywhere. The design is nicely balanced so it moves faster in the hand than the weight would suggest and makes cutting tasks seem more effortless. The Modified Pessimist is an amazing knife, handmade by Todd himself, so act fast!
