I’m a big fan of doctor or physician knives. They usually come with a spear point blade and a spatula. The knife butt, on the best of them, is a solid flat end cap used to grind medications and materials. There was a time when doctors would make house calls, especially in the more remote parts of the country. Sometimes they need to open their black bag and formulate medication by absorbing a liquid into a solid and solids to ointments. This called for a spatula and a way of grinding materials. Hence the doctor’s knife.
I dig Physician’s Knives. I had a really nice Utica that I bought from Mark, that ended up in a trade for something else that is currently in my roll.
