I know! They have more! Here is one of them, just arrived in the mail yesterday.









I got it, snapped a few pics of it while still pristine, and then promptly put it to use doing some spring pruning around my house. Very effective nice knife. The blade is 11" and the grip 6" for an OAL of 17". Solid and nicely balanced. I'm definitely going to use this one.

That Golok has a nice narrow flat grind (or possibly a convex grind). The Condor Golok I bought last year has -- and I'm not exaggerating -- about a 40* flat bevel grind. It's really, really a fat edge. I'm considering regrinding it to be a more standard 25*.

Actually, I'd be out finishing it this weekend, but I cut my thumb, and it's an important thumb for finishing what's left.

Yeah, pulled a regular EG there... left distal tip, my thumbnail stopped it or else it might have gone down to the bone. One in the kitchen that apparently needs sharpening, 'cause a measly nail shouldn't slow it down with that much force behind it.

I guess even "expert knife handlers" have a bad day now and again, I usually cut myself in the shop, not opening a heavy plastic bag.
