Nice clean work, just what you want for your JS. Good luck, though it looks like you don't really need luck.

I said that.

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.

Those are beautiful! I love the look of the handles. There is a crispness to these knives that I personally am striving for but have yet achieved.

Look great!


"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Those look like they should fly.... you going to the Blade Show? Good luck with your test...


Pay attention to your photos. that little piece of leather you used to prop up the blade to take the photo distracts from an otherwise really nice photo..
