I really like handle design and 225mm is the perfect size for me - I must resist...

Stunning

Simple and elegant, just the way I like it. I already asked for a permission to copy some aspects of it. :)

Yes, but will food taste as good and sleep come as easily? ;)

Congrats on a very nice score 99 (and to Devin on another quick sale).

Quick? It took almost two hours!
Congrats to both parties.

I couldn't believe someone else hadn't snatched this up earlier myself. I started hunting for a new knife last Friday and found three that I really liked. Each time I went to make the purchase, I backed out at the last moment, thinking maybe I'd find something else. I can't believe how things work out. Timing is perfect too, my wife is out of town until next Monday.

Glad you took it 99, or I would have "borrowed" money from my savings if it were up there any longer.

That's really nice, Hoss. I like the "buttcap" treatment.

Isn't that the tang?

I am going to guess that there is a mechanical fastener in there since there are no pins.It looks much cleaner without the pins to me.

It was a cool thing to do. The handle really looks like a piece of a stick from a distance, yet in the close-ups you can see how well-finished it is. And it has such nice curves I had to surpress a desire to ask it to go to dinner with me :O

It is a Corby bolt. There is a short piece of all thread welded to the end of the tang for the Corby bolt to grab on to.

Damn! I saw this minutes after it was sold. I'm bumed I missed it, but glad that it found a good home.
Stunning work though Devin (as usual) I really like the handle shape and orientation to the blade and the simple yet classy trament of bolster and full tang.
-What i would call pretty/beautiful vs hot.

I'm always impressed with your work Devin and I'd like to say that it's great to see a US maker doing this type of laminated blade so well. You deserve a :doublethumbsup:

Took delivery of the knife this evening. I want to thank everyone who wanted to buy it, but didn't, so that I could have the opportunity to try one of Devin's little one-off projects. Will try to put together a review this weekend. Thanks Devin for making cool steel that can be turned into cool knives.
