The new Bird and Trout with tasmanian blackwood over bronze on the NitroV SS blade . Lovely slim little knife with its 4 inch blade should be just the thing for those smaller tasks
Who are you calling odd? That Maroon handle I had to have was for my wife. I've met a few Odd Bod's around the traps, you could be referring to someone else, some of the synthetics are fit for purpose. Horses for courses. Some bloke mentioned a Kephart knife and I googled one showing Maroon handles that started something. The other knife I handled with a Micarta handle was made by Kiwi fella for some Crow eater, nice knifehell garry,
i know a guy that did not want wood at all!
but then he is known to be a bit odd.
Garry, I really like the Chinese chopping knife style but for what it's worth I think right handed ones will sell better.A left handed "D" handle on the chinese vegetable knife with black lacewood over brass on the L6 HC blade and a Serbian chef knife with stabilised willow on the 1084 blade.
I learned a lesson with the serb knife in that a wide blade like this is a real chalenge to snad after hardening so in future I will do a pre HT hand sand and do an antio scale coating to make things less difficult and time consuming

Yeah, I realise that. It was my attempt at humour .the left handed one was a commission so left handed was what he got. I dont do very much in the way of spec knives at all so what I make is generally what is ordered.
The strange thing is that a left handed version is very comfortable for a right hander. The top of the D section is like a ledge for the side of the thumb and still indexes the knife in the hand very well so in effect, either right or left handed is equally usable for either hand.Yeah, I realise that. It was my attempt at humour .
It's a good design and looks the part, I'm right handed so that's my version of normal.
Beautiful. Very nice.
