Sorry guys, I just got off the phone with Del a couple of hours ago, and I held up his time in the shop by close to 2 hours. I drank coffee, Del walked around his yard with his dog. We talked knives, steel, and even the war of 1812.
All I really wanted to say is that Del is one of the coolest/most interesting guys you'll ever chat with, should you get the chance.
We're trying to work out the details, but I just might make the drive up to his place to play with his dog (some sparks might fly, as well).
Anyways, I just wanted to thank Del for a great chat and remind you all that this dude makes crazy, awesome stuff.
