    So true, Pallin. I've watched my 9/15 and my 5/35 in western red cedar. I've never had 1/2 the edge in the wood.
    Mind you, that's still a big bitecompared with a practical bite from an 8/7.


    With a big mallet, I need gloves for the shock and the most gentle ofgrips toavoid hand pains.

      thats one gripe i have always had with knife makers they put out a excellent knife great steel and all shiny but basically stick the thing in a dowel and send it out so your stuck carving with what amounts to a penciul i have more and more got the blanks and make my own handles and have even cut blades out of the handle and remake a more ergonamic handle (spelling)

        A lot of good information about Knife Handles , I hope I'll be able to remember it when My Hands start to Cramp up . I'm 87 yrs. and feel that I'm very Lucky in that area . My Knife Handles are different sizes and lengths , whatever Blade I want to use I just pick it up and use it , not worrying about the size of the Handle . As Joe said about the Ideaus Boys , I watch out for the Mortise Boys , ( Reggor ) . Merle

              Merle.... Just do like I do. Every morning I wake up, look out the window, and if the grass is green I figure that I'm okay. The day that all I see is brown is the day that I'll know that I'm in trouble. If Rigor Mortis has already set in I won't have to worry at all.
