    My iimited nitial impressions are this:

    PROs: the length and swoop of the the profile are amazing. It just lends itself for pull cutting and naturally swoops up while slicing so the blade is used fully from a few inches from the heal to the tip. The handle looks awesome, and Randy did an amazing job.

    CONs: It's not as good for harder stuff like really hard cured meats. I suspected that. The handle also -- while beautiful -- is odd. A dry hand on a dry handle is quite slippery. I actually dampen my hand before using it. This is different.

    So here is a pic of my two sheaths with knife. Town Cutler did the work on the sheaths, and Galen was very nice tow work with.

    K great looking sheaths! Thanks for the initial impressions. I look forward to a further review of the knife.

    Blessings

    Randy, I apologize a bit for my initial impressions. I was a bit tipsy when I wrote that up. That's the problem with drinking less, your tolerance goes down and a little goes a looooooong way. I was just happy I didn't commission a custom knife while under the influence. I promise to give a better write up once I have tried it out some more.

    k.
