    Dave,

    Just have Randy swing by for a couple of days to take pictures of you in action.

    I know how that goes. I'm not a very sentimental person, so I rarely every stop to show off or preserve memories. My wife is always yelling at me for mailing things off that were a ton of work and not taking a picture! But she's a photographer.

    Beautiful work Dave.
    Your refurb made this knife look better than brand new.

    I just wanted to say thank you dave. I just unpacked the knife and it truly is stunning and a bit hard to believe that it is the same knife. I snapped a couple pics that I'll upload later when I can get on a computer( its in the process of being reformatted ). One of the taper of the handle, which is perfect. I was never a huge fan of the skimpy stock handles on sabs, and one of the distal taper which on a sab is dramatic to begin with, but with your regrind is amazing.

    Hey it was my pleasure and I'm thankful for having the chance to work on it. I'll be looking forward to your pictures.

    Wow, it must be incredibly satisfying to be able to do that kind of hand work. Hats off.
