    Use the image address, not the URL of the page. Right click on the image, copy the address, then paste it. Nice cleavers! Is that a Harner in the middle?

    Yep, it's a Harner, terrible pic, but the handle is incredible. Super fortunate to get it from Butch. Fits my hand like it was molded for it.

    Not sure why the pix wouldn't load, dropbox wasn't working for me, but photobucket worked fine. Weird. Either way, thx for the help but got it sorted, more pix over at; http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/sh...ast-collection
