guess what was waiting for me when i arrived home tonight? uuuh, the mud turtle! you guessed it!
this knife is a bigger knife than i expected. well, of course, i didn't look at any specs. and, it now occurs to me that in fogdart's family album, it was about as big as the viktim, which i'm familiar with. with that said, i like the size. and first impression is that i like the balance, as well.
fit and finish is good. i like the blade shape. the grind is right. and heath, you weren't kidding when you told me to be careful. nice edge buddy.
my other first impression is that i immediately want to remove the "sharp edges" of the "belly" of the handle. it hits my fingers just wrong as i grip it. there are other edges on the "top" of the handle, but they do not seem to bother my palm initially.
heath, thanks so much for sending this to me. very much look forward to putting 'er to use. i hope to get some time this weekend, though it is supposed to be very cold this weekend. and, i'm old and soft now.
