    Wish you could do it, or do an additional one, in New York for all your fans east of Philadelphia. . . . We might even be able to find you a kitchen or classroom up to the task.

    Very good looking, Marko, and a great choice of wood. I get tired of the walnut/wenge that's available elsewhere. And IMHO, 18" is the most useful size.

    As you can probably guess, it doesn't fill the palm of your hand as a full-size handle would. It stays in the fingers when using it for slicing, and it's damn good for a pinch group where your fourth...

    +1 I've come to prefer the thinner profile Sabs, and a Sab Nogent with Fibrox-like handle and properly heat-treated stainless at 60+ HRC, well, there's your gold mine for all.

    Photo now visible: EDC at 3,500 years old

    Photo uploaded successfully this time so you have a chance to see an EDC circa 1500 BC, waterproof too since it's flint. The stag handle in back ain't too different from what Ed Fowler might have...

    Yeah, it's the grippiness and the comfort over the long haul, as Salty pointed out. Could't pull the thing out of your hand with a tractor. Way better than ho-wood.

    But in agreement with everyone...

    Best handle ever?

    Of all the beautiful handles I've used (Phil Wilson's stag, Bill Burke's musk ox, Michael Rader's koa/mammoth, Stephan's koa/blonde horn and his blue bakelite), and much as I hate to admit it. . .

    Don't forget the importance of heat treat. It may be AEB-L but the blade (at Rockwell 58 or so) isn't developed in the same way that, say, Devin Thomas's are.

    Ancient flint knife or wa-handled EDC?

    Actually, they're part of an exhibition of Phoenician culture (1500-300 BCE) at the Hecht Archeological Museum in Haifa, Israel. While I've seen a lot of pre-Bronze-age flints, these are the first...
