    wow I got this in today and I can not tell that it has been all over the country. The blade is so taken care of I am afraid to even put a smudge on it. Eamon did you do any stropping or anything on this, I cant tell at all.

    well gonna have to do some cutting this week and do some comparing with other steals.

    Ty again for letting me try this out.

    For the record, it's been to Europe, too.

    Yup. It took a good edge.

    I am very impressed with this knife, and steel. I got it from Eamon with a beautiful edge. With using it all week with moderate knife work, I only had to strop. after work on fri. and just before I sent it off.

    The hybred part of the knife was def. different. When I was pinch gripping it I wanted to slide down to the end of the handle and hold it there. When I would use it for slicing on the end of the handle it felt right, were as normally I would feel very uncomfortable. I have no idea why this was a second, but then again i don't own a custom yet.

    It was an experimental knife and the finish was not great. I have a feeling PabloZ took care of a lot of the latter part.

    The "custom"-ness of it has nothing to do with anything. Not all customs are created equal and some are a better value than others depending on what is important to you. Knowing what Rottman/Tilman's custom stuff is like, I had no problem springing for a second.

    I agree with you there. Lovely knife. I wouldn't mind owning a second either. I hope I didn't come off as a jerk there. I was trying to say that in my mind he hit the mark, and even more. I'm sure I would be blown away with a first.
