The "Rävan Special" (Fox) is one of the ones that feels so good to me. The handle has just enough shape to give control without restricting you to one grip. The curly birch handle is a bit over 4". There is just the suggestion of a finger guard. The 12C27 stainless Sandvik blade is 3 15/16" long (10 cm.), 13/16" wide and .100" thick. It comes with a dark brown sheath with a belt strap rather than a thong. The sheath accepts belts up to about 1 1/2", and has a plastic liner.
