    Bhakta's back in a big way, that Farm Knife is quite appealing and the VUK is no slouch neither.

    A fat, stubby Farm Knife. Nice.

    Gave it 3 hours. Can't resist. Email sent.

    Got the Done Deal.

    I agree with Steely. I have a couple of the full-sized Farm Knives, and find them a little too large and heavy for many around-the-house tasks. I'm looking forward to this smaller version. It's still plenty large by most knife standards, but I think I can use it in the kitchen without destroying my counter-tops. Also looks like it might be a good all around EDC, although I couldn't actually carry it where I live because of laws limiting blade length. I think the maximum is about a centimeter. :(

    For self defense purposes you'd have to carry a screwdriver, as long as the end isn't too sharp. Personally I prefer a 4'-5' staff, which I use as a walking stick on uneven terrain. Steep hills and busted up sidewalks, of which there are plenty.

    I have one of the original Farm Knives from some time ago. Its 16+" long, and I have always felt that it would make a much better knife if it were made a bit smaller as the sheer mass of the knife I have could work against it as the edge is very thin and bites deep and the point of the cleaver very acute. The trade off being user error. A bad stroke or stab and twist could result in a break in the edge or snapping the tip. Its not the knife's fault. Its a phenomenal cutting knife.

    I just think shrinking it down to this size is the right move. I do love my Farm knife though:)

    I've have very similar thoughts Steely although I don't own a Farm Knife. Been thinking this might be a good first. Trying to be strong but I'm rapidly weakening.

    I do love my Kumar Farm Knife, but it is a beast - it's 17" and 33 ounces, with a very close to 3/8" spine, and with a very acute edge profile.

    I don't have a cutting board that will stand up to it - I guess I need to get a tree stump to use with it...

    Yeah. Anything above 27 oz on a full size would be too much for me. Looking forward to full size, lite, Farm Knives with them pretty chos. Hope my budget is ready for 2 of them when they're around.

    As a side note, so, am I correct to assume Farm Knives and Farmcattas/Farmcatas main difference is lack of cho, and different handle design? That is, Farmcattas/Farmacatas lack a cho, and their handles have full forward coverage, like a guard....

    Pretty much. Farmcatas name came about, I believe, due to a forum member (most likely of ill repute that talks too much and should not be paid any attention) commenting on a Farm knife another member that came with a Falcata handle attached to the Farm blade. In short, unless there has been something "official" done by the kamis, a Farmcata is just any variation of the Farm knife with some sort of umbrella shaped handle.

    It's been nearly 10 years and I still haven't gotten my hands on one. Which is weird. I totally should snap up a Farmcata as I love the grip on my Falcata. It's my favorite part of the sword. In truth, the thing is so dang heavy that the umbrella grip works against me using it a bit. Marrying that handle to a short, utility shaped blade with a fine edge and acute point would make for a really handy knife.

    Dang! Talked myself into one :D

    Better keep my eyes peeled on the DotD:)
