As robust as the long shank of this "Knight" is, it would be easy to mistake it as a Lovat at first glance. And, granted, the Lovat does tend to be quite a bit more common a Canadian-family shape as well. But from what I've seen so far, Tonino gives this oft-neglected classic more attention to most - there's two in just the first batch hitting our site. While the other is rendered in smooth-polished olivewood, for this one he went with a more conservative medium, namely deeply rusticated, crisply textured briar in a subdued, dark maroon.
