    I have been wanting to tackle a long thin ground slicer for a while now so this is what i ended up with.
    It is made from .110" AEB-L at 62rc with cryo treatment.
    Handle is highly figured Nicaraguan cocobolo/green burlatex/African blackwood. 60073991_2286624561419658_6091455088310616064_n.jpg 60192568_2286624524752995_8717875173757288448_n.jpg 60254508_2286624348086346_6194691052541050880_n.jpg 60256052_2286624404753007_3752780000466567168_n.jpg 60290032_2286647151417399_2648192430016299008_n.jpg 60317065_2286624438086337_3550647968954580992_n.jpg 60713220_2286624481419666_1588284850295537664_n.jpg

    Very cool. Beautiful handle. In addition to fish butchery, it looks like it could be useful for home defense. :p

    :rolleyes:, It may be able to fit that bill as well......if someone gets past the 80lbs. pitbull and copious amount of lead headed their way. :D

    Is the blade quite heavy or did you make the handle extra long on purpose?

    Seems longer than a typical handle for a slicer that length.

    They blade is actually quite light and nimble.
    I made the handle larger by about 1" in length than I normally would by request.

    I see. I’m used to slicers that long being probably (from what I’m guessing based off the picture now) around a good 5 inches smaller than that.

    Is there a reason for the handle being so long on a light regular sized slicer?

    I think maybe the picture is making it look bigger than it is...also I have smaller hands so that doesn't help with relative size. On a 270mm-330mm slicer I usually use a 6" handle, after measuring this one it is about 8" long x 1" tall x 1.25" wide at the back and tapers about .25" to the front.
