Very nice. I really like the way you make the steel blend into the handle. Almost an integral, almost a self handle, nice concept, wonderful execution.

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

That's really nice. I like the way you softened the radius of the finger area at the base of the blade. Lots of nice touches. Purty wood, too!

I still haven't tried magnification but have been giving it more and more thought. I was sure it was a casting. I really appreciate seeing our work!
