Thomps Newest Knife
While we're thinkin carving knives, and extra fine carvin knives at that, this is Thomps latest transformation of an ol' German straight razor. Thomp patterned this knife from one that Allen Goodman uses on the shelf elf. Its an "upsweep" blade, that is 1 3/4 inches in length, with a 1 1/2 inch cutting edge. The handle is a simplified "crayfish" design, out of laminated hard woods. I been testin this one out, and can say it's a good one. As well it should be. Ol' Thomp did learn from Rick Ferry. Then of course he added some Black Water Swamp mojo to it. If interested in this knife, leave a comment, and Ol' Thomp will get in touch.
