    Just got a Basic #9. Very nice. I measure the
    blade from the handle to the tip to be a bit under 10 inches. The sharpened edge is 9 inches. Are the Basic #7 and Basic #5 "oversized" as well?

    I would appreciate someone measuring their #5 and #7 Basics and post the length of the blade from tip to handle and the length of the sharpened edge.

    The correct measurement is from the back of the ricasso to the point...
