    My "micro Gaucho" (aka Surls Patch) and the upcoming Lil Gaucho should fit nicely in between for a kitchen set.

    I can't wait to get this one! I'm very happy with my GB Hiking Buddy and I'm sure I'll be even happier with the Gaucho. I've been watching for one in Osage for quite a while. This one will complete my set of kitchen knives. I'll have an OS Karda, OS Ladyfinger, Gaucho, and Woodsman. That covers all my kitchen needs.

    Not the Woodsman. It's Buckeye burl. The rest are Osage w/ natural and blue.
    Someday I'll find the matching Woodsman. Or Padre!

    I'm also really excited about this. I've been wanting a Gaucho for a long while, but I've been waiting for the right one. Choosing between Ironwood and Osage wasn't easy however. Ironwood over natural and blue would have been my preference but natural over white is an excellent choice too!
    I'm going to second the motion for a thicker handle as well.

    Am looking forward to this! Now to come up with a sleek pocket sheath for it. Something to protect it in the kitchen or when you take it out. . .

    Pretty stoked about this opportunity. Been holding out for this pattern in stainless for a while. Look forward to the WIP images. Thanks to FB for making this happen and Bmurray for pitching the group buy format. This process is going to make a lot of folks happy when that pattern they been seeking comes up...

    I’m working way too had these days.... I just saw this and realized that it’s now Wednesday. Oh well, I’ve probably got enough knives anyway....
