    I've had it a little while but it's the first time I've used it in the kitchen. When you hear that it handles like a much smaller knife believe it. It will now be my go to knife for most all of my kitchen duties.

    It's called Finadene and it's a recipe from Guam. This is the base recipe we use, but I've seen hotter peppers, cucumber, etc added as desired. We love it over white sticky rice but it's also traditionally served with chicken and pork.

    1/2 cup white vinegar
    1 cup soy sauce
    4-5 jalapeƱos
    1 tomatoe (I think Roma works best)
    1/2 white onion
    small bundle of green onions

    I think you would really like it Phillip.

    So I'm pretty interested in an Arowana. And I have come across a beauty in 3/32 A2 but I am just not sure if that is too thin to be primarily used as a general outdoors camping knife. Anyone have thoughts on this?

    3/32 is plenty thick for any cutting tasks. Where you'd want to shy away would be chopping and batoning. But to be honest, that's not where this knife shines anyhow. It's just meant for slicing. That's in its DNA. The long, up swept blade just digs in phenomenally. My arowana is in 1/8, and I love it. But I'd get a 3/32 if I could do it over again. Just my opinion.

    These pictures belong here. I really like this knife. Mine get used a lot. I have both 3/32" and 1/8". Now I just need a scandi wearing Ironwood!
