To go with the new Nessie, I have created another 2 knives. This is the second of the set. The knife is unusual because it has a very long and slim handle. The length is slightly over 8 1/2", a bit longer thaan the Nessie, but the blade is only 2 1/2" long. The reason is that I am growing to like long handle on my knives. I have fairly large hands and I found it easier to manipulate a knife with a long handle.
