I should have posted this long ago and thought I did...after poking around here recently I discovered that I did not. So, here it is... Terrio Handmade Knives Snarkfinger! JT was so very generous to include this in the goodies box at the spring Beckerhead gathering back in May of this year. My wifey isn't very knifey and thought it looked neat and said "can I have that one?" Well...I'm really glad she did because she got more than a knife... Being a newbie at my first gathering, I had only a few brief conversations with James. After discussing the Knife the conversation turned to chickens then all sorts of other stuff. I feel we also got a friend. He's one cool cat that if we lived closer I'm sure we'd be good friends. This is one sweet little Blade. I've never owned a handmade Knife before and this is top quality. JT will have to chime in on the steel, for the life of me I cannot remember. The micarta scales are smooth, tight, and perfect. Can't even grab an edge with a fingernail where the tang meets the scales. The ergos are great for my size hand. The bulbous end lays right in my palm allowing a tight grip. It's large enough that I'm not squeezing my fingers back into my own hand. Nice, round, and smooth with no hot spots. I wear large sized gloves but my hands are by no means big. I'd say they're average. No pun intended but the Snarkfinger fits like a glove... The tip is needle sharp. I have literally used it to dig out splinters more than once. It catches on my finger prints when ran accross the point. Of course it came razor sharp and still is. I admit it hasn't seen a ton of work. I like to bring it kayaking because its one of the few knives I own that isn't high carbon steel. Mostly some twine, rope, fruit etc... Of course it excelled at these mundane tasks.... I plan on making a kydex necker sheath for better access while in the boat. It's been a fun Blade to have around and always a conversation piece when the wife sees me using it. More so its a great memory of that weekend and the great time had and people met at our first Beckerhead gathering. I caught a photo recently of five THK knives and one really caught my eye. After having this one...I'm sure my second ever handmade Blade will be a THK. Thanks for looking and thanks again JT!
