That's a real dandy!
I've been after a custom wharnie and liked several I've seen from Ohta. The problem with most of them (not just his) is they're a little too short for me. I contacted Ohta and asked that he make me a #109 but lengthen it a little. Well, he produced a #133.( His model number for a long #109?) I recieved it Saturday and boy is it a beauty. It got a handle that's 4" and the blade's 3.25" . Nice traditional shield, jigged bone and some smooth snap and pop. I can even pinch it open! Mr Ohta has outdone himself with this one. It's a perfect knife for me!

That's a real dandy!
He is a great knife maker, I sure wish I could afford one. Agreed on the wharnecliffe slipjoints I've seen too.
Very Nice! Ohta's #109 Rodgers Wharncliffe has long been my favorite of his patterns, and yours offers even more to like about it.
I have 4 and one of my favorites is a small "Camper" in ivory, beautiful!

Ohta sure does nice work, wish I could afford one right now.
I've always liked that pattern. I wish the cap was fluted though.
Gorgeous knife. Everything just seems perfect.
A pinchable warncliff sounds right up my alley!
Looks like a real winner in hand!
Ohta makes a great knife at a very fair price - I have 4 of them. Enjoy it!
Very nice, sure it wil see a bunch of pocket time. Enjoy that beauty

She's a pearl! Nice size and his jigged bone looks
on time! Congrats...
Man, that sunk joint pushed me over the edge. Good stuff.
Very nice, indeed.
I have an older one with flutes at both ends, but he seems to have moved to a single flute around four or five years ago. I think they look nice either way.
