    Thanks Dave... I cant wait... Here a werstern and a Wa..

    I think hes been evolving, I see his knives with flatter profiles and his western handles are a bit slimmer as well, I can tell from his bolsters. The damascus bolster on his integrals are my favorite feature. But his wa's also command atention...

    I like everything he does but if I could only have one I'd have to have an integral bolster western, he does that so sweet.

    Very nice colin! I wondered where that one ended up.... Yours is the revised version! I like the 52100 on that knife, so sweet! The profile on those knifes is somewhat unique...

    These should be called the Rader fan club threads!

    my Rader is full custom integral wa gyuto!! Micheal told me the Rader mid-tech project never took off because he didn't like blade's Heat-treat, there only 12 Rader mid-tech gyuto on the market....

    Speaking of Ivory, what's the law regarding their use?
    It's pretty difficult for me to get a piece of razor with ivory handles across the state line. Same for other cutlery?

    I believe he is using fosilized walrus tusk.

    I sent Michael an e-mail to make sure that the pieces he is using fall in the following category.

    Marine mamal protection act, Marine mammals that died before 1972 do not fall into the same protected status, and Non-Alaska Natives may use, sell and possess marine mammal parts that meet the standard of Pre-1972.

    Someone care to venture more information?
