    Stefan I also thought red as well for liners but not the pins. I was also picturing copper liners and pins.

    Nice photoshop Ben, I think I prefer this too.

The bevels on the side of the blade are done very much like the Japanese grind their knives using only applied pressure to set the bevels. When I run my fingers down the blade I feel a slight convex but when using a straight edge (spine to edge) I see the bevels clearly.

    Oh I almost forgot - the best part is how sharp this thing is and how easy it sharpened - VERY nice on both counts.

    Well you now have my opinion. I would like a more personal logo. Martell is for me a cognac...

    I would like "Dave" or "Dave Martell"

    I like the font, but not the glowing. Cool D

    How do you suggest folks sharpen? Is it possible to reproduce the three bevels, or do you suspect most folks will cut right through that and leave a typical bevel(s)? Or would you suggest convexing?
