    Ok, well I made this knife for me but I have received more interest in it than any other knife I have made. I decided to do a passaround with it so you guys can see if you like it. Remember, this thing was made for my hands so it might not fit everyone. What I would like is some feedback on how I should make it for the public. I already know a thinner handle would be better suited and more of an angle at the front of the scales. I also need a name for it! Same rules as last time. Post if you are in and lets limit it to 8 because I would like to get it back before June 1st. ONLY MEMBERS OF THIS FORUM OR ANYONE WITH A 100% FEEDBACK RATING ARE ELIGIBLE. Use it for a week or so and contact the next person for their address. Shipping is on the sender.
    The handle on this one is over an inch thick so if you have small hands you might want to think twice about throwing your name in!

    I'd like to be one of the 8, but if there ends up being a lot of guys that didn't get on the first passaround that want in on this one you can feel free to give them my spot.

    I'd ask to join up, but you probably won't send it to Canada for a passaround, and I'm ordering one anyways:p.

    I posted it up in the other thread in W+SS, but with the fat, comfy handle, how bout the Fattycrafter?

    I am dying to try this one just for the handle. That has been my biggest issue with factory knives and one of the reasons I started following you, Bill, Ray and Koster here. You all make handles big enough for my arthritic hands. If I don't make the list I can live with it, but will probably beg after the pass around is done to just get my hands on it to try out the handle.

    Haven't been so excited 'bout a knife in a while. It's a good feeling.

    Dogonit! Late to the party!! That looks like a real sweet knife Chris! That handle shape is one of my favorite but most of my knives that I like the most are about .700 to .850 or so wide. Really depends on the blade. It'll be interesting to see what everyone thinks of the thicker scales!
