    Hands down, this is the most comfortable handle I've ever used. EVER. In any grip I can think of, too.

    Yeah unfortunate company name but they've been in the business since 1778, so I doubt they'll change the name now just for the sake of the American market. :p Great knives though. Get your hands on one and you'll never laugh at it again. :)

    Now this is one great looking knife. If I was into straight knives, this would be my dream knife.

    Blessings,

    I really like the handle shape on the Scrapyard 711. Its big enough to fill my hands well (Medium-Large glove size) but small enough to be comfortable with gloves. The bulb near the pommel makes three finger snap chops a breeze! I'm definitely in love with the Res-C.

    What does the top-down on those look like? I do like the look of the profile but haven't seen a good shot of the top for the contours.

    I really like it, it's not too extreme but feels really good in the hand. I'm not too good at taking pictures but hear are some top shots.

    EDIT: Never-mind, I dont know why it does show the rotated picture. Hopefully that will suffice.

    (I've only got crappy photos of the knife with the sheath I made...sorry.)




    Those Res-C handles on the Bussekin knives are amazingly comfortable too, and really tough to boot!

    That might not be the prettiest of food prep knives, but it looks ultra comfortable for chopping duties. Might have to pick one up for the magnet.

    It's an absolute terror in the kitchen, and has replaced my chef's knife for all tasks. Beautiful slicer that's almost like having a manual rotary cutter in your hand. Makes pushing, pulling, and rolling cuts with ease, minces like you wouldn't believe, and the blade makes a great scoop for transferring cut food. The straight spine can be used to scrape cut food into a container very nicely as well. It's a German-style "wide bladed trimming knife" but it's a chef's knife on steroids for me! :D:thumbup:

    From the knives I own I'd have to say the Fallkniven micarta handled F1, closely followed by the Bravo 1 although it's more contoured and bigger than the Fallky.

    The most ergo handles I've on my knives is my Wolverine from Andrew Jordan. Look up at his handles. They feel awesome.
