It is a real handful , just what I wanted for roughing out my large wood sculptures. And it's a real looker !

It slices, it chops; it's a knife, it's a froe. Beautiful handle, impeccable fit and finish on this one, we'll see how the burl holds up. Not compliant with Blade Sports spec's for competition, but that's okay; bigger is better in this case. Just an awesome big blade fix with enough steel to make two (or more) knives if it ever breaks post-apocalypse.
