On a side note, I just went back through the progression and resharpened the knife. I left it a little toothy rather then a stropped smooth edge. I am liking a toothy edge on this one even better!!
Thanks for all the help and input on this knife.. Im happy to say that this one is no longer available. ...
I gota say, Im gona miss having it here to play with and swoon over! lol :D
Thank god! I don't know if I would have been able to resist another post from you looking for a buyer -- that is one of the most striking knives I have seen.
Congrats on the sale, and congrats to the new owner :cool2:
Here it is ready to go to its new home and virgin cut!!!
I'm curious to know if it performs as well as it looks. :knife:
This one is heading to the same gentleman who was requesting a Chinese veggie type knife. Its going to be a tested to see how it preforms under real world use. Ill let ya all know what he says after having used it in his restaurant for a week or two.
Coll box you found Eaglewood! that should make transport easy, and initial presentation very nice!! :) Thanks bro!
This one is back from its test drive. The verdict, Its a wicked cutter and a laser! and preformed wonderfully for him.
There were a few people who asked about this knife when I was making it as well as after it was completed.. If any of you are still interested.. PM me..
