Thank you very much, Marty! I really appreciate your compliments.
Sorry, I’m a little late with my response.
Your starter knife “K… something” was a “Klötzli #2”? The forger/cutler Ernst-Ulrich Klötzli (1911–1975) designed this shape together with the master chip carver Christian Rubi (1899–1990). It is still in production and available since the 1950s until today. I just purchased some the other day.
Do you mind if I post a picture? (I don’t want to compete with your fabulous knives on your own website.)
