I'm starting to get concerned about the whereabouts of the Alaskan Ulu knife I sent you.

Have you not received it yet?

SWMBO'd is in Anchortown now, visiting the older kids. She can stop by the factory if you need some more. ;)

I noticed the same stuff in the past... some folks are just more equal than others

Worry not, exalted and gracious lady! I have indeed received it, and am happily using it to chop onions, split firewood, make intricate carvings of lizards, prepare samples for microscope slides, scrape ice off the windshield, cut down trees, shave above and below my beard, slice pastrami so thin you can read the small print on the back of the credit-card bill through it, and receive extraterrestrial communications! A most versatile and wondrous tool! I was waiting to post until I got a couple of good pictures, but I would be sorely remiss if I didn't say, loudly: THANK YOU!

But you haven't yet used it to clean a fish??No sir, I have not. I have my share of bad habits, but ice fishing is not one of them.

Glad to hear you got it. It's the best pizza cutting tool I've ever used, LOL.

Looking forward to seeing a picture of it as I didn't take one.

In the UK, it's exchange a penny so as not to cut a friendship.

One of its many uses:

Sharpen carefully first:

I am but mad north-north-west. When the wind is southerly, I know a hawk from a handsaw.

Ahhh... I see. I guess I can't say anything, There is a bronze duck standing in my hallway, perhaps he should be moved to the kitchen counter. :d

Bland.

So Lefty, it appears you don't like this Ulu!!! Hmmm...

It's not that I don't like it, but I know you have a discerning eye, and I don't see anything particularly striking about the wood grain in the handle, and you said that you picked it because of it's exceptional grain pattern.... That's all.

Those are some very good knives, I love mine. They will slice and dice with the best of them.:)
