    Western plains buffalo horn feurrel, vulcanized fiber spacer. Glad its finding favour! The steel is harder to work than most I have used, but I think the extended edge retention makes it worth it.

    I really wish you had an iPhone friendly site Pierre, this is the third time I've gone to check out your stuff only to be foiled by flash.

    I just got the Pettysuki back from its trip down south. It came back well loved, well cared for and with a slight tan(?)
    Seriously though, I'm glad it's back!!! I was more than happy to let a couple of the guys on here give it a whirl, but I ended up really missing it. I used it today and I think I had forgotten just how great the little beauty is.
    Well, that's all. I just felt like sharing. Haha

    I loved it! The design is deceptively accommodating--when cutting rinds off of things, I often move my knuckles out of the way to make for clearance on such a small knife, but this thing provides ample room.

    The profile is perfect for it's size, and the gentle curve allowed for it to behave like a bigger knife, but the heel section still took care of small chopping tasks.

    The handle is larger than I would have, but it was specifically made by request with a larger handle, so no beefs there. The mammoth tooth is sooooo cool looking, and it's fun to let people guess at what it is all day long(everyone's first guess was "Jade"), without ever coming close.

    The steel, s35vn, is my personal favorite all-around stainless. I love the way it feels on the hones and love how tough it is while still taking a great edge. It doesn't hold a refreshable edge forever like some good carbon steels I've used(notably Mr. Rader's W2), but (though nothing ever will, thankfully)this steel comes closest in my estimation to "full-on stainless that acts like a carbon steel".

    Man, was this a fantastic little knife to have around. I loved it so much, and am so grateful to Lefty for letting me borrow it, I had to give a little back. So I made this out of poplar, since it's a little green:

    Doesn't quite hit the ferrule, but hey, at least it'll never need a pin!

    Thanks Lefty! You rock, and so does Mr. Rodrigue.
