    Don’t forget about the candiru! Smallest knife in the Esee line but a damn fine knife. I carry it everyday.. Unless Esee decides to make a PR4 the size of the Izula... Just say’n ;)

    I'm surprised nobody said "get them all," you know that's the correct response. I think I'll start with an RB3 or the 3Hm, I really want to check out that handle.

    So I pulled the trigger on a 3hm, my xl-sized hands can't wait to try it.​
    I do wonder if the wife is going to steal it when she tries it, she is always on the search for the perfect "short" kitchen knife. I hope she does like it, she can have it if she does. She can have whatever she wants, right husbands?
    Thanks to all who offered opinions/advice/pics in this thread, it was very helpful.​

    Good choice but she's probable not going to care for the powder coat finish in the kitchen. The AGK or RB3 with the black oxide coating would probably make a better food prep knife. I've been looking at a JG5 as a personal butcher knife for myself. My wife doesn't treat her kitchen knives well enough for me to buy her nicer ones than Rada.

    The JG5 is hard to beat as a butcher knife, I have used it to process many an animal for the table, TJ’s AGK is another great knife for butchery.

    You are absolutely right. Thanks for pointing that out it, didn't even cross my mind-- funny how that works. Well, I didn't buy it for her, so she'll have to wait for the next one. I was 50/50 on the RB3 or 3hm, now I can actually get her opinion and buy her a task specific knife. CR3 soon too. Thanks for the heads up.

    The JG5 is definitely on my list, I'm a big fan of Mr. Sears. The AGK is up there too.
