    I just picked my Artisan up at the post office this morning. To say stunning is an understatement!. The finish is now better than ever, the spine is softer and easier on the hands and the sharpness is something I had almost forgotten about. And the handle, superb! From a woodworkers eye I can say the work is excellent, I love the colors of the iron wood, the red liner is understated and works well with the colors in the new handle! Thanks Dave.

    And my wife has no excuse for mistaking this knife for any of the other beaters we have in the kitchen.

    I have to admit that it was a bit nerve racking doing woodworking for a woodworker and also to make it as nice as the board you made for me was the challenge. You did a stunning job on that board and all I could do was try to do my best and get close with your rehandle. I'm glad that you like it and hope it serves you for many years to come.

    So I'm finally working my way into August's backlog - woohoo!!

    Here is the first of three that I'm doing for Sean. The wood is some crazy old growth redwood that he scored directly from Stefan. Looks more like tartan log or something nutty like that.

    These knives are (ahem - paying a compliment here) "rough at best" and rehandling them is at least twice as challenging as anything else out there. I give the maker low marks for this particular one. The rehandle really changes it sooooo much though - it's crazy the difference.

    Well the lighting is bad today but I managed to get a few Ok shots....

    I read this thread with the exact same perspective.

    I'm glad you have my suji because I just moved and don't have any money to buy new stuff so when it comes it will be like Christmas.
