My KITH entry (copper and damascus higonokami ) has shipped to Aiden and Alan's lovely dangler is here.  Thanks Alan.

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

Glad you like it!  Tell the truth, I know the bolsters are a bit rough, finish-wise.  Are you happy with it?  I am planning on making more in stainless, just looking for feedback, and I greatly respect your opinion. B)

I think it's perfect.  The long sweep of the blade gives it more edge than a straight blade the same size.  I assumed the frosted look of the bolster was intentional.  I'm going to start using it as my kilt carry piece.  Perfect size for a pinch grip and stout enough to a full hand grab with the thumb on the back notch.  I like it quite a bit, and as I said, I'm going to use it.

It is, in that I was intentionally tired of polishing. :lol:  Just scuffed it on a scotchbrite belt to make it look deliberate.

Brilliant!
