    I got my Dragonslayers from Randy yesterday

    http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/at...4&d=1317485621

    I recieved my Damascus set from Randy and Randy Jr. yesterday and I think I am in love all over again. They are exceptional in every sense of the word. The fit and finish is awesome. The ironwood handles are stunning, he truly is a burl junkie. They are so smooth and have such substantial weight to them even though they are fairly slender.
    Randy Jr. did a wonderful job on the Damascus. When they first showed me the Reverb pattern for my knives I was a little skeptical, I wanted feather pattern, but I have learned to trust the instincts of the craftsman I work with and in this case it was dead on. I can feel the pattern when I'm cutting it isn't much, kinda of a gritty toothiness that gets the job done. When I first looked at the blade I had a similar reaction to Salty, I thought everything was going to stick and nothing did. It just kept cutting and cutting with no issues. I used it for about 8 hours yesterday and another 14 today with out once going to the hones. It still shaves the hair right off my arms.
    I love the gyuto, but the slicer may actually be my new favorite knife. I had it patterned after a 50 year old eskilstuna slicing knife from Sweden. Tried and true design. It was perfect then and still is now. I cut proteins all day without a hitch.
    I have not had the chance to use either of the paring knives yet, but I am fondling one right now.
    The knives came in a rather cool over engineered leather case. I am going to scuff it up and dip it into some neats foot oil and soften it up a little bit and give it the that lived in look.
    for everyday line use I have a new home for three of my knives compliments of Chef Niloc. A butcher belt sheathe that I will actually wear bandoleer style.
    In short if you want something unique and beautiful these guys are the guys to do it.

    They are coming out small on my side. 373 x 280ish. Are you shrinking them down or having a program resize them for you?

    I am not doing anything. I just push the upload button and that's it.

    Same size. You might have to select a different size of photo to take on the camera itself.

    That might be it, I think it may have a thumbnail setting and that maybe what it is set to.
