My hands are massive.....The no 12 is ridiculous. It makes my hands seem small. The barrel part of the handle has to be around 1". This is next to a no 8. I have no idea what I'll do with it. It is the longest bushcrafty knife I now own. I wear a 2xl glove when I can find a 2xl large enough to fit. Crazy. Only 3.9 oz.
