    Dave, Thanks for sharing your thoughts, always inciteful. What wonky knife. Can you believe that somone that has the knife knowledge of ken Onion is designing something so bazzar.
    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    Man, you guys really hate it when I'm right, dontcha

    No, the foot analogy is perfect. You could get a good rough estimate of height & weight from someone's foot, assuming they have normal proportions (ie, a knife with consistent geometry from heel to tip). But you can't tell anything for sure, because not everyone is built that way.

    It was just a hunch - it's hard to believe it's really that thick behind the edge through the entire length of the knife. How does it cut anything?

    That choil shot is disturbing. Surely it thins out quickly toward the tip, no?

    Sorry but I don't know what you are meaning on jimping.

    Tk I think the lack of distal taper means it doesn't much. Watching that youtube vid I posted in the other thread I wouldn't think it get thin very much at all.

    Honestly you can tell a lot about a person from the teeth, feet and hands. Wait that is a horse.... oh wait that is a person. Any way the choil shot says a lot about the knife exp. when it's new. After it has been with someone and been sharpened it can be misleading. Just like white teeth.

    If a woman's foot has Kankles, she's 99.99999999% of the time gonna be fat. I'm not really too picky, but some nasty feets are really a turn-off for me.
    Hammer toes
    Bunions
    Extra toes (polydactyly)
    Foot fungus
    Nail fungus
    crusty foot
    stank foot
    swamp foot

    I rest my case.
    I win. U lose.
    Ha!

    Jimping describes notches cut into the blade or handle for grip. In the photo below you can see jumping above the spydie hole for more thumb traction. If you ever watch tactical folding knife videos (nutnfancy) those guys are crazy about jimping.. Because need that grip when you're in a life or death knife fight in the pouring rain. Ken Onion, who's known for making fighting knives, adding this feature makes sense!

    So what does it mean that I can pick up pennies with my toes and hold a pencil with them and write my name?

    Ty ar11 never heard it called that. But then again fighter/bowie knives are a total different world than kitchen knives which Mr. Onion has proven again.
