    that looks awesome! if the group buy hasn't sold out yet, i bet it will now!

    Yeah, that sucks about the cladding, You'd have to shorten the knife and move the profile up to remove it, and God only knows how far up that goes!

    Etching is cool. Does it stay though?

    Oh yeah it'll stay put for sure although the edge may change in appearance based on how it's used.

    As you all know these are my favorite knives hands down, Dave you really made that one look great You may end up having to go with a more centered bevel if that cladding there is at the bevel, save what you can from this knife even if you don't get the near 100/0 bevel.

    I always watch with interest at what your dooing with the Hiromoto AS knives

    Nice job on the weight reduction! It seems like a crap shoot what you are going to uncover when you thin these.

    Yeah it's true. The cladding on the left side was all over the edge and I ground most of it off of the edge except for that one part that I couldn't get. I can't always fix the problems the factory builds into knives but I try.
