    It might LOOK like a joke...

    By Tracy R.

    from Des Moines, Iowa

    Pros

    • Attractive Zebra Wood
    • Right tool for the job

    Cons

      Best Uses

        I'll admit, I bought this one as a "joke" for my collection of knives, but it surprised me with how functional it really is. Iowa's weather this year was lousy for morels, but I had a few pounds of portobella and plain old white button mushrooms to clean for a family reunion, and this thing was absolutely perfect.
        If you have small hands, the handle might be a bit big for you. It fit mine perfectly however, and the brush end was exactly the right stiffness to pry off any clinging dirt, while being gentle enough to not bruise the mushrooms. The curved blade was just right for trimming the stems, and the jimping on the back of the blade made for a firm and steady thumb rest.
        The tweezers which are included, and recess into the back of the handle beside the boars hair brush are of the type familiar to anyone who has ever owned a Swiss Army knife. The description in the catologue says it's perfect for removing any thorns and such while out in the field picking mushrooms, and I will have to believe them. With any luck next years weather will be more conducive to mushroom production, and I'll have the chance to try it out. Until then, if you like mushrooms and find yourself cleaning large quantities on occasion, then this knife might just be for you. If nothing else, it'll make a novel and attractive addition to your collection.|
        For those who are wondering, this is a folder. The included sheath was the only sour note to this one, as it seems a rather cheaply made and unsubstantial nylon which will surely begin to fail right away if subjected to the field. I would recommend going to a sporting goods store and buying an after market sheath.
        Handle length (folded) is approximately 5" including the bristles, while the blade length is 3&1/4" with an effective 2&1/2" cutting surface. It doesn't specify, but it seems to be made of 440 or lesser stainless steel. At any rate, it comes with a satisfactory sharp edge, and has held its edge rather well.
