    this thing looks good. I sold a few things around the home so i hope to be able to get one when the time comes. I hope that we can do a bulk shipment from canada so that we can avoid crossing the border and upping costs

    Here is a pick of me trying to make it a new leisure suit:

    I'm gonna have lots of fun with this one, all week long!
    Looks really good... and I can tell that you get no pleasure at all from being the first to fondle it and show off pics while everyone else sits and drools. I'm sorry that your position in this process doesn't have a more immediate reward than the joy and utility that the knives will bring to others once they're done.

    So how much of the work was done by Lamson? I know one of the original goals of this project was to help them remember how to make good knives and to hold them accountable where some other vendors may have let things slide either out of ignorance or apathy.
    Is this knife a sample of what Lamson is capable of or a 1-off mid-tech done by Pierre to serve as a reference for the production run. The plan for the final run is to have Lamson doing 100% of the work and Lefty and Pierre just running QC, right?

    Is it me or does the heel look softened at the tip a bit? If so that makes me very happy, cause I was already pretty happy with it. ;-)
