I've actually spent quite a while trying to figure out how to tie a willow(elliptical) blade onto a handle that works and doesn't copy either Grohmann or the couple of others I've seen by custom makers. I own a Grohmann lockback and really like how that blade works when it comes to cutting/slicing. This one as a 4.5 inch blade out of 1/8 inch 154CM. Handle is some of my burlap jcarta( I ran out of Todd's) with copper/NS trim. OAL is 9 inches and it weighs 6.5 ounces. Nice cutting knife. Still needs sharpened/sheath.
