The top Knife is a very old Frost with a 7 1/2 inch handle. It is my favorite, as it sharpens well and keeps an edge.
The lower knife is a Mora with a 9 inch handle. It is not my favorite.
The handles that came with the knives were too short as well as to large in section. I kept thing if I had a longer handle, I could get better leverage and reach. They have worked well for me.

Interesting thread; I use a scorp for hollowing spoon bowls and it has a handle around 3" long. I would have thought that a longer handle for leverage works better for tools like stock knives which are braced against a fixed point.

Well here is my first attempt today at re handling Mora Knife....... with a 8" Handle had to cut the Tang down a bit as couldn't find a drill bit long enough in toolbox... Twine whipping is Just belt and braces.
Fingers crossed it works well, it feels better in my Hand ( Small Hands).
Not the best pictures just quick snaps.. gives an idea
Look forward to seeing other memebers handles etc...
