    My Padre showed up today and oh man, what a beauty! It's getting run through it's paces right now with cooking dinner but I took some quick preliminary photos...

    Here is a size comparison shot with my two Ladyfingers and Hiking Buddy:

    Very nice photos IBS! Looks like a real cutter for the kitchen.

    Man, that is a hard knife for me to make. I love when they are done, but they are very challenging.

    Thanks guys. Sorry to below on the specs reply. The specs are 5" blade with 4" handle. S35v steel and black linen micarta handles. Thanks for making another one of these Andy! I've used it a few times in the kitchen now and I really couldn't be happier with this knife. It really slices like crazy!

    Can't wait to get one of these. I cook a lot so that would probably get used more than any of my other 20 or so
    FB's...:rolleyes:
