My traditional dreams came true!

So, my favorite traditional pattern is the sodbuster and Great Eastern Cutlery makes the best that I've ever tried short of a custom. Theirs has a nice round and chunky handle, a very heavy and secure pull, a nice snap, and great blade shape. I own a few of those, but I always wished for a larger version. I know they made a larger version, but it had been some years since. However, they just released another run! Instead of a 3in blade, the blade is 3.75". The handle is 4 5/8". Blade is 2.5 mm thick. Fit and finish will surely be as flawless as the smaller soddies. And only $62 each!

This run they are doing black linen micarta, od green micarta, and orange delrin. I can attest their orange delrin is pretty nice, but I just ordered 2 black micartas. Od green hasn't shipped yet.
I own an assisted knife and am embarrassed to admit I enjoy it.

Knives Ship Free has some, maybe only the smaller version though?

Got them from Knifeconnection.
Knivesshipfree and DLT just got them in.
Make sure you get the #21 and not the #71.
#71 is smaller.
