I had a chance to use my Little Hen bowie today. Man that is one great knife. Ron Leuschen left a little extra on the handle for me so I can slide back a little extra to clear brus. But it is so balanced that I could whittle with it. Imagine, whittlin with an eight inch blade Ron has a real talent for combining simple materials to end up with a unique whole. Every line seems to grow from the others and your eyes naturally follow each line smoothly from beginning to end.
