How about a FAT BOY?

Finally got started on the Cheff knife.
It's a Fat Boy, short version of a Chief knife.
This is the rough profile.

Thin for slicing? What is the intended use? Beautiful wood and a nice design. That is my preferred handle shape also. I went sort of "wild", when I retired and hit every second hand shop after buying many good deals on ebay. Now I have drawers and blocks full of kitchen knifes (Couldn't afford to do that with bows or guns :( ). Now, after 2 years in the kitchen, I've found my favorites for different uses and jobs.
Jesus replaces the old covenant and speaks to the believer the moral code of God by His Spirit directly to the heart. He is the eternal, everlasting revelation of God to mankind. In Him is both the knowledge of righteousness and the power to live right.

Yes, it's going to be a thin blade for veggie slicing and dicing.
The shape is intended for holding part of the blade for more dexterity.
