Was it Sal's concoction? Maybe Eric, maybe Mr. Perrin and Mr Schempp thrown in The leaf version of this small FB seems to exemplify the skills of all.
I did have handles made for mine, Zach did a superior job and they really make my Swick as friendly as it is. Still curious as to the design origin of the blank with the finger grooves and butt that seems designed for a pinky
The question comes up for me because I took it out today and saw the edge wasn't up to my current standards. After reprofiling and using for a few small things around the house I was once again struck at how friendly and useful this little FB is.
I genuinely appreciate the thought that went into making these blanks
