This morning I swapped out the Maserin sodbuster for this Issard pen knife. One of the factors that inspired this little experiment was the realization that I have several knives that I've received as gifts from friends here on the Porch that I've never (or rarely) carried. This is one of those knives. @Jolipapa sent me this knife along with a 1st birthday gift (a Stade Français rugby shirt) for my daughter, Eleanor, last summer. This Issard is a fantastic little knife. It's incredibly slim, and just the right length (in my opinion) at around 3 3/4" closed. Both blades are super-thin behind the edge. The factory edge on the main blade was a bit rough near the tip, but it sharpened up easily and now it cuts like a laser! I'm looking forward to using this one this week. (To be honest, I don't even know if the steel on this knife is stainless or not; maybe I'll give it some food tasks to find out.) Here are a couple photos from last year of Eleanor wearing her Stade Français shirt. Thanks again, Jolipapa!
