Very, very sweet. Love the pear wood, this is the first knife I've seen it on. Although it looks like your knife had an encounter with mustard sandwich.

Thanks guys! I couldn't pass up on this offer from Mr. Rader. His blades are my very first custom knives and let's just say the bar has been set very high for all of the others in the future.
