I got this knife on loan from Son and I gotta tell you, this is one of the best knife I have ever held. The blade length measures 2.5", nice comfortable handle. I have never made a western handle paring knife, but after trying out this little guy, I am sold.
It's going to be a while before I could offer it as an option, I will keep you posted, but just to give you the heads up.
Also, looking for suggestions for an oyster knife. We talked about this knife over at Son's, but I have never owned an oyster knife, so I would need a heavy input.
