Getting one of the american whittlers 29 SFO is a great find. It's funny because when they first previewed the 29s I had no interest in them and was happy my wallet was safe. After seeing seeing them on the dealer sites long enough I eventually talked myself into picking one up to get into whittling and to have as a beater knife. Now the 29 is one of my favorite patterns. The ergonomics on the knife are great. Ended up picking up the a smooth appaloosa bone maher and grosh and now that is one of my favorite knives. Interesting how getting one of these knives in hand can completely change your opinion of the pattern.
