    I may not be getting married anytime soon (much to the GF dropping some hints every once and a while) but when I've decided on certain plans for my life and my marriage comes around This would have to be the greatest wedding set in the world!

    To go back to school for the next 4-6 years living off savings and accomplish one of my life goals or to stay in a wonderful paying job that lets me buy lots of nice gifts and knives. What am I ever going to do.

    Nice idea butch, never thought about that. I'm just big on " keeping it local". I had my suite made to measure by the local tailor. Shops no slouch, top notch but but the guy has been coming into my restaurants for years

    Victor ( the tailor above) introduced me to a shoemaker a few years back when I had some questions about leather work and were to get this and that type of leather. He's making my shoes.
    Friend of mine is a travel agent....
    You guys get the idea keep the money in the family and community.

    The rollers are used to reduce the size of the stock, patterning comes a bit later.
    Thanks,
