Chuck, it's up to you.

Chuck, I owe you a Barge, so I reached into the box and grabbed one at random. Then I shaped it and hit it with a 600 stone. I put it under the lighted loupe' and gasped!

I like the looks of a re-curve knife if it's not extreme. Now the picture below was take with the knife leaned back so the two re-curves are a slight more exaggerated.

From there, I looked at the lock. The frame portion of the lock engaged the blade just slightly off to the left--my favorite position.

In other words, the visual appearance of the folder is (to my eye) perfect. Now here's my predicament.

1). Do you want a user or a paper weight? (You get "life sharp" anyway).

2). Do you prefer the slice of a straight edge or a re-curve?

3). Here's the closer--the bevel is perfect on both sides!

If I wanted a paper weight I'd go out in the yard and find an appropriate size rock.

The first Barge you sent me is mine, the second and coming third one will be gifts for my twin grandsons, you pick it.

I don't always use a knife, but when I do it's to cut something.

On a knife like this, I'd use a touch of slurry. How old are these kids?
