Got a huge surprise from my beautiful wife this morning!!! for our 1 year anniversary. Was not expecting anything like this, she even showed me pics of the making process, and the piece of buckeye burl it came from. Think she loves me? :)

Very cool... how does the short handle feel in your hands? Does your pinky feel left hung out to dry, or is there enough to grab?

I have one of these coming, too... not as fancy though. ;)

Just got a Woodsman with black ash burl handles. My first Adventure Sworn but won't be my last it feels great and the fit and finish is top notch.

Pics to follow after I put it through its steps.

It really depends how close to the blade you grab the handle... it feels comfortable enough though I haven't used it enough to tell how that is long term. The pinky does kind of float freely depending on your grip. If I were needing a knife to cut through a ton of material repeatedly, such as cutting up a bunch of boxes, I could see if becoming an issue.

Update- Got a chance to whittle with it a bit tonight, and one very noticeable thing was how nice switching cutting angles is with it. To flip the handle back and forth and around in the palm is such a smooth and natural feeling. With this fluidity of grips, I am amazed at what precise cutting can be done with its 3" blade.

Nice pic! I'm glad that you like it.

The Walker is a comfortable three finger knife, but if you want the power-cutting strength of a full size knife you can choke up on it (with the fingerguard roughly in the center of your index finger and your thumb's metacarpal sitting on the ramps).
