    Look what the postman brought today

    This just showed up in the mail today.



    The way this was packaged there is no way possible it could get damaged by rough treatment by postal workers.



    Took off the wrapping.



    Absolutely perfect handle.



    And a flawless blade.



    I wonder if it can cut?
    I will be trying it out over the weekend, then it goes in the mail to my Son In Law as a late birthday present.
    I wish I could have kept this one but I already opened my big mouth and mentioned that it would be ready real soon.

    Thank You Mario for making such a beautiful knife!

    You could always give him another knife and tell him it was that!

    Wow, it's glorious!
    It would be tough to turn that guy loose.
    At least you get to play first though.

    I am happy it meets your expectations. Doing a handle for "The Burl Guy" was a bit intimidating.

    Well, at least you'll get to visit the knife when you go to your daughter's house!

    Nice work Mario, and congrats Mark.

    Beautiful knife. I'm also glad Mario stepped up his game on the knifecase. Mine came wrapped in tape and the remains of a coke carton :-) Knife was nice though!
