Yikes, what a knife maker!
The bevel is perfectly shaped, front to back and then left to right. I tickled the dragon, and the edge almost bit me! I don't know how he can shape metal that tough that perfectly!
(In fact, if the knife ever goes dull, which I doubt, I wonder if I have sufficient Atoma stones to re-shape the edge. I will need the diamonds).
CPM-3V is an alloy that can cut other alloys and Kevlar. It's freaky hard!
The handle and finger choil are so ergonomically shaped it's like Brad measured my hand before he cut it. For those of you who are lucky enough to own a 1911 from Terry Tussey, every line on the knife has been "melted" and smoothed--and I looked!
I owned a Medford once which Doc bought. That knife and this Bradford are clearly the most perfect knives I have ever owned.
I talk on the phone with 'Resident every few weeks about sharpening and his sausage business. I wish he was my neighbor right now. I'd love to drop by, and say, "Hey, 'Res,' let's whack some meat!"
...and then watch the look on his face...
Edit: If you blow up the picture, you'll see three little white dots in front of the choil--I think they're my fingerprints. I say "think" because I never felt a thing!
