    I got my much anticipated Toby's Knife along with the LRK+ today.
    I love the TK,thanks for the design Peter & for the execution John,great little knife.
    I kicked around the idea of having John make a little kitchen knife along the lines of the Victorinox Paring knives for quite awhile.
    I have a few left over from my time working on a fishing boat out of Dutch Harbour AK.(we used them for bait knives & line cutting)

    Anyho,when I saw the Toby's Knife John made for KYenglish I new I had to have one,it's close enough & of course,much nicer & should hold an edge a bit longer too.:cool: (I have to resharpen the Vics before each use)
    Thanks guys,love the TK!

    And the LRK+....couldn't pass one up at that price.
    Another great little knife from the JK shop.
    I'm going to piggyback it with my Hudson Bay.
    It just so happens it fits in the TK sheath perfect with the cord wrap on the handle,again....:cool:
    The TK won't need it as it is going to reside in the kitchen anyways.

    Here are some not so great pics.I had to throw in the one with the Kephart for size comparison.

    Thanks tl,I had to gut the cord so it would fit in the TK sheath,but it does the job of giving a good grip still.

    And order a Kephart,you won't be disappointed.

    Like you wouldn't believe! :p

    Great pictures Mykel, and a really good job on the wrap for the lrk,

    Glad you like the TK, I kinda had the fishing theme in mind for it so it makes me fee really god to hear it reminds you of ones you used while working on a boat, nice handle choice as well :)

    Thanks Peter.
    It would be a great Bird & Trout knife.
    Mines going to be my steak knife & veggie slicer.
    I had a burger today & used it to slice some tomato,but the tomato was bigger than the TKs blade!
    That's ok though,it made it through fine with multiple cuts.:thumbup:
    Can't wait for Sundays pork chops.
