This little fantastic house knife. Using it 95% of the time at home.

Fantastic cutter. I don't feel like we're giving this smith enough love, it's a great knife.

This is my personal knife.
Please treat it with respect.

If you look st the choil shot it's a fantastic grind with excellent food release and gets nice and thin down in the edge
Great small task knife and it's been to work a few times great for smalls tasks like red potatoes for potato salad as an example

I've always wondered about these knives. Unfortunately they don't have 210 or 240 formats

Yeah totally
We can do a single person knife visit not s lot of interest probably due to small size of the knife
