C Craft Customs ~~~ With every custom knife I build I try to accomplish three things. I want that knife to look so good you just have to pick it up, feel so good in your hand you can't wait to try it, and once you use it, you never want to put it down ! If I capture those three factors in each knife I build, I am assured the knife will become a piece that is used and treasured by its owner! ~~~ C Craft

Holy smokes, Jake. I think that may be my favourite, so far. The whole piece just feels really... balanced? The transition from the habaki to the bolster is really excellent, as is the bolster to the handle, and on and on. Thanks, this was a nice way to end a day.
