    Cool

    Here are a couple more pictures, one showing my family of Butches!!

    I met Butch 5 years ago at the first ECG; at that time he was a struggling, fledgling knife maker just scraping to get by. I donít think he had enough money to get a hotel room that night! I was impressed with what I saw, his determination that he could make anything; a diamond in the rough you might say.

    How times have changed, Butch has evolved into a gifted craftsman showing us he has the talent it takes to make anything and now one must wait to get a custom from him! As I said earlier the wait is worth it!!

    We had several discussions regarding what I wanted in a fillet knife. Primarily I wanted it stainless steel, I didnít want a blade with a lot of flex and I did not want it handle heavy. He looked after my wants; the blade is a new SS he is trying out and I will be giving him fed back as to how it holds up, the blade has very little flex and the balance point is just in front of the handle.

    The blade is slightly over 10 & Ĺ inches long, measured from the handle and the knife is just over 15 & 5/8 inches in overall length. The blade is approximately 1 & 1/8 inches wide. It came push cutting sharp out of the box and Iíll see how long that lasts.

    I havenít anything on hand to use the knife for itís intended purpose, so I am using it as I would a guyto, to cut up everything for supper, just to see how the steel reacts. Iíll post more after some use.

    Again, thanks Butch for the great job!!!

    good stuff, thanks for sharing his work. I'm guessing CTS-XHP? nice symmetry on the chef's knife by the way. What is his wait list at present? I'm very looking forward to these exotic steels he's capable of putting out.

    for you left coasters: these crazy southerners call Mahi Mahi "dolphin."

    Last time I was in FL it sure took me a while to get used to seeing dolphin on the menu everywhere, or even more wierd, ordering it for dinner!
