Got my new Mudd Knife today:D! I've been wanting one for a few years and had the chance to order at the Maine Boatbuilder's Show last month - 3" blade, cherry wood handle. Now to get the boat in the water!

Glad you followed through with the knife order. As for getting the boat in the water the sleet and freezing rain has to go!!!

Nice knife.

Not to sound stupid, but what's so special about it...?

Nothing special other than the fact that they're made one at a time by a 85 year old guy in Wiscasset, ME and have bit more character than my spyderco. The knives Mudd SHarrigan makes are essentially re-makes of old Scandinavian maritime rigging knives and are carried worldwide. If anyone reads Woodenboat Magazine, there was a really nice article on Mudd and how he makes the knives a couple of years ago. He's a real craftsman/artist.

Nice looking knife, i like the sheepsfoot blade, be great for cutting gillnet web when mending. Only thing i'd do was add a hanging twine leash that looped through a belt loop on my pants that way i'd never lose that beauty :D
