Haha I don't think I'd use pedantic. Great job, Will, it turned out very well.

Thanks very much, actually in this case I don't mind being called pedantic, anal might being going too far:lol2:
A customer has bought this for a relative, so i'm a little nervous as I don't know much about the new owner. I'm including some instructions, a welsh honing slate, which will do him for touch ups and some chromium oxide/balsa. Hope it doesn't end up in the dishwasher after 24 hours:nono: I'll have to send him an e-mail too I think with some video links and a link to the forum.:thumbsup:

I had a hard time saying how much I like this knife because I couldn't stop looking at it. That's such a pretty petty. I think I need to get on your list.
