    A few more to show off

    All of these are PIF's except for the boning knife, but they're already spoken for. I figured I'd show them off here 1st, maybe I'll put them in PIF later.
    Wustoff bread knife is going to member Samuel Peter. He just finished a stage in SF, and is about to take CDP position in Chi-Town.
    I originally thought both of these Sabs were stainless, but after testing them out at work, they were reactive and patina-ed.
    The boning knife is going to stay with me. It was my grandfather's knife. I believe he "borrowed" it from the mess hall while he was in the U.S. Army. It's a carbon steel, mass produced knife. It might be an Ontario Knife Co.? I think my dad said his mom used it to cook everything when he was younger.
    It is very cool that I now have the opportunity to use it every day.

    Big thanks to Son for the Sabs!
    Some of the wood is from mhenry and Mr. Magnus

    Chris, I'm a little confused by the double pin thing going on here. What's up with that? Those handles look mighty comfortable though!

    There's 3 hole slots but one side will accommodate a large pin, and the other side a small-kinda like a keyhole. I guess I just did it because I could!

    Always impresses me that you're giving away nicer knives than most of the guys I work with use.
