i am on a roll trying to get stuff done. I am absolutely unsure as to what to call this knife. its like a honesuki/slicer/large petty. I will let you guys decide. she is heavy duty, yet delicate if that makes any sense...
specs:
Blade: W2 at 195mm in length, 37mm tall at the heel.
5mm thick at spine with a full distal taper to a thin, fine point.
Hamdle: Honduran Rosewood burl and african blackwood.
134mm long, 18/25mm at the ferrule 23/28mm at the buttcap.
weight is 215 grams and balances just behind the makers mark.

I think the name for this kind is, "Dead Sexy".

Nice blade and handle. Tempting, but there's no way I could justify that. GLWS!

One thing I will say, after handling a few of Mike's knives, is that they feel substantial, yet refined. Suitable for both splitting carcasses, and mincing garlic. He somehow finds a good balance between a bruiser and a laser, in a very similar fashion to what I've experienced with Marko's knives. I'm really looking forward to putting my Davis gyuto head to head against my Tsourkan, because of the surprising similarities in feel (as far as I can remember).

You could always call it a "freestyle," lol
