    Dave you would put those crazy show car polishers to shame with your shiny handles. Some have even wondered if you used mother of pearl pins when we saw part of your reflection in the pin. They really look like glass.

    So I wanna know, you ever run your head through that same buffing process?

    Have to agree, that looks great - have you changed your finishing routine? And why do I spend time finishing these things with higher grits and oil if yours look like that without that?

    This knife was delivered today. Looks even better in person. And it feels silky smooth! Thanks, Dave!

    Another rehandle here, this one is a Hattori honesuki. It also got itself a etch job and sharpening. Hope you like it Rick.
