The Beavercraft C17P is very fine and manageable. You will find that you can easily manipulate it. The handle is shaped so that it sits comfortably in your palm, hence why it is called a palm handle knife.  


This knife looks relatively short and compact. That is because it is. The blade and the handle are almost the same lengths, so when you look at it, it could almost look like they are the same length.
