    They even have a County Fair. They just call it something different, "Hemp Fest".
    Reminds me, I was hitchhiking across the US in 82 and an embarrasingly large number of people I met didn't know anything about Germany unless they had been in the war. I was asked whether we already have refrigerators in Germany. We invented the damn things...

    Anyway, great looking knives and beautiful use of the woods. Since this is not my world at all: Do people actually use such knives or are they more show and collectors' pieces? Would almost be a shame to ruin the nice blade

    They are made to be used but a lot of the guys collect them and many end up in a case.
    Prices on the fighters by a decent maker can range from just under $500 to $20K+
    It's a whole other world there.
    But then, I didn't know anything about quality kitchen knives until recently.

    Ya, how many knife fighters are there? And can they afford knives like those, unless they are also crack dealers!

    That whole san-mai thing really gets my attention. Just wish I were a younger man.....
    I'm curious, what is the progression, sandpaper, buffing, etc. To get a finish like that on the dyed Burl?

    I just posted a new thread showing how Claudio shapes and finishes his handles.

    The knife arrived today.
    This is my attempt at a knife photo.

    I think I had better stick with taking pictures of wood.

    CAS' knives are soooo cool. The blades are just out of this world and the handle look very comfortable and match the blade perfectly.
