Very cool detail shots there Jon, many thanks
my pleasure... looking forward to playing around with it a bit... so far, i think my comments will mirror what others have said... long neck, weird edge profile (esp. near the back 1/3 of the blade... you get a wierd clunk clunk when cutting with the profile that flat), handle super long (but nicely done), etc. I'll say more when i've had some time to use it a bit.
Looking at these pics reminded me of something I meant to say earlier. The skill level on these knives is very high. This knife reminded me a lot of my experience with the Rader passaround. Plenty of skill but the design needed some work. I'm putting Catcheside on my short list of wants along with another Devin, a Burke, a Rader and a Tsourkan...
Back on line folks. Kalaeb is up next. Thanks all for your input so far, its been a real learning experience.
