Probably should have added this to the "which machette?" thread, but here it is. 345mm blade... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001TPDYGM Finally broke down and ordered a watermelon knife. For under $30 all in and delivered the next day from Amazon?! Roll those dice! I have been using a 270mm Henckels to open watermelons for decades... And had a memorable accident some while back using the chef knife two handed on a melon. Hand applying pressure near tip slipped, top of tip was QUITE sharp enough for a good cut across my palm. Looked at the FG-3000A variant which comes with a slip on grooved wooden "auxilary handle" for applying pressure at the end of blade away from primary handle. $15 more and waiting an extra month for the shipping from Japan? I will make my own handle.
