    Thanks, Bobby. Your input is helpful and much appreciated. Yes, I have read all I could find especially on this forum. Lots of discussion and personal preferences. I'm going to go back and look at that Stohlman book with the nice illustrations of using the knife and, using your input, see if I can make a (somewhat) intelligent choice on the length.

    Thanks, Pete. Exactly the type of input I'm looking for. No doubt I'll probably end up with more than one knife also, but didn't want to make a big mistake at first and get discouraged. Is the length thing (1.5 inches vs. 2 inches) just a comfort thing? Or is there more to it than that?
  5. What Options On A Henley

    Hi Everyone, New to the party and just getting started. I've read several books and done a fair amount of research on the net. Now I'm ready to actually start acquiring some tools and get started making some coasters to build some skill. I think I'm going to order a Henley knife, but I'm confused on what options to start with. I know this stuff is very subjective, but I would appreciate any input anyone has. Apparently, the Henley knife is available in 3/8, 7/16, 1/2, 9/16, 5/8. Also available in 2 lengths, 1 1/2 and 2 inches. Throw in 6 different blades and fine or medium knurl and you have about ....well, I don't know how many variations, but heck of a lot. So for a total newbie with ZERO experience, which one? Since it appears to me a persons physical attributes may come into play here, I should mention I'm your average schmoe. Average height, weight, fingers, and hands. So any input is greatly appreciated. Why would I want a 2" knife over a 1.5" knife? Which blades are good for what? Thanks! This site is a great resource.
