    This knife can also be left "as is" after a little sending if you like a longer knife with a larger grip handle.  Note: Due to the thickness of the handle, the blade may be difficult to open since the nail groove is completely cover by wood. Please read answer #10 from our FAQ page here to solve this issue.
