    I'd forgotten that Devin had advertised those numbers and the conversation I had with Brad at Peters was fresh in my mind. If Devin says he's hitting 62-62.5, I'll believe him. Sorry if I offended...

    I've never noticed any condensation on anything in the shop.

    But doesn't atmosphere condense when the temperature goes down, like going from afternoon heat to night cool? I was a wildfire fighter...

    I'm assuming the rainbow lacquer isn't the same stuff one can buy at an auto parts supplier in a spray can. Too bad.

    Do you know anything about the particulars of that lacquer coating? It is...

    That's pretty work! I like the color and sheen choices a lot.

    From your picture, it looks like you haven't cut a hole in the handle for a tang. I'm curious how you've designed the handle...

    What's your process for hitting 60-61 with ATS-34? In my experience, 61c is hard to hold without the blade being chippy.

    It sure is nice looking. I like the handle in particular.
