But with this utility knife it all seems to come together, the rough finish, plain handle (not that its really plain but in comparison to some of the other work out there) it works so well together, I'm sorry I missed it.
    It's not really a kitchen knife, but an outdoor knife, a Whitecrane, unless I miss my guess:

    Not to say that you can't use it in the kitchen as a utility knife. Good price on the one that sold, BTW.

    Hekler, I get ya! Different looks appeal to different people. I just like how Murray's knives scream "working knife".

    I like that the knife does not have a red liner like most of his neck knives and western-handled kitchen knives now seem to have.

    Same. That's why I want one. Too fancy and it just looks tacky IMO. I just want something with great performance and understated looks.
