    I just got the knife today and it looks amazing. The handle looks better than in the pictures, and even though I have only tested it out on some potatoes, it feels so so good in the hands. I love the profile and weight.

    One question: I didn't notice the mirror finish at first. Is this the same finish you have been putting on all the knives?

    I'm heading back overseas for a week on Saturday, so you will have to wait for better feedback at a later date.

    Hi Karring,
    It's great to hear that it arrived safe and even better that the first impression is good.

    The finish isn't what I'd call mirror since it's got visible scratches, maybe it could be called shiny? Anyway, the finish is close to what the others had with only small variations between each. It's a work in progress I guess.

    Well I hope you have a good trip and I'll just sit here stewing until you get back. LOL

    Dave

    Yeah, not exactly a mirror but in your photos you can see the reflection of the ceiling. Maybe we should have a thread on what is mirror (seeing oneself or scratchless)

    That is effen (not the vodka) beautiful. Great work dave and beautiful handle. The spalting and the black liner work great together. Fine job.
