    Just used the dragon for the first time since getting it back from its makeover firstly Dave, your work is stunning. There are no gaps, no high or low spots... Flawless fit and finish. Second, I remember why I love this knife so much. The profile is about as perfect as it gets in my opinion and I love how well the steel responds to stropping. Thanks dave for remembering that we talked about felt strops and sending me those scraps. I forgot all about it. Ill get it mounted up soon. Do need some diamon spray though ;-). All in all. If you read this and have a knife that needs re-handling I've got two examples of Dave's capability and I feel you would really be missing an opportunity to bring new life to an old love if you didn't send it to Dave. Over and out.

    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....
    "rough at best" is really the nicest thing one can say about these... curse words was probably the only thing that left my mouth when working on a 300mm from the same series. Happy to see that you made it out alive aswell.
