Well life is good in my world, my stone came in yesterday, and my knife and guide today, while I was out picking up my new to me Bandera.
I have to say it is not a knife that will wow you with stunning beauty, my wife thinks I am nuts, nothing new about that. It is very sharp out of the box, and so far I like the grip and feel, it is much easier to use a claw or pinch grip because the the blade heel is set out a bit from the handle making it a more natural feel. Thanks for every ones advice here.
Let us have a drink and by God lets us not think about the things we ain't never going to know about.
