    Very cool! Looks like it should be quite functional.

    Randy you've been paying attention, the profile looks in the ballpark, I think that you'll get some attention on this one and those to follow.

    This looks good. Sort of like bienik's modified Forschner. How are the faces ground? Can you provide a spine shot at the tip? How thick is it right behind the edge? The bevel looks large. What is the angle at which you sharpened this knife?

    Randy, it looks great! I like the way you evaded the bolster issue by not having any.

    Are you going to send it out to anyone for some feedback?
