    Mailman was good to me today... and I'm thinking that I may have my new favorite woods combo :)

    I'm impressed with both of these blades... the duke especially... it is MUCH more nimble then I thought it would be... and much thinner behind the edge (somewhere around .022"-.024" by my measuring) then I thought it would be and bites into wood extremely well. It's a bit large for game prep, tho certainly would work, but it will be a fantastic food prep/woods blade I think... The scandi handyman is excellent as well! Very happy with this combo I think :) After a quick sandpaper/strop touch up, both are hair popping sharp!!

    Thats a great combo. Add a SAK and there isn't much you can't do.
