    I trust Bill as well

    My experience with Bill has only been pure pleasure. He is honest, he is gentle and one of the few people I have met that won't deliver a second.

    That is what the ABS would prefer, but i think that it may still be a bit of an "honor system"

    hello every one from the rocky mountains. I am still at the mine so will keep this short. Since I will not be hitting these knives while they are hot they will not recieve the MS stamp.

    I wil have a couple at the ABS EXPO in San'Antonio the end of this month. these will prototypes and will be more custom than mid tech. Right now I have a 240 mm gyoto and a 88mm petty, if all goes well I will have a 180mm slicer to go with the other two. I did a bunch of cold forging on the 240mm gyoto then thermal cycled it a few times above and below critical the a spherodizing aneal and a triple quench. I am going to sharpen and do some test cutting tomorrow. Also going to have a killer damascus 210mm gyoto laser there as well as the 210mm Tamahagane yanagiba and a couple of other kitchen type knives as well as a couple of hunters. I have the sheet 52100 in hand now for the midtech's just got to get my patterns drawn up in cad and take everything to the water jet guy.

    Just put in a word with the spouse. I'm tentatively going to this. All it would cost me is a day off work and a tank and a half of gas.
