    I am not saying the knife is not great, (I have never held or used one)and I greatly appreciate the 2 reviews so far, but really I almost think at this level of the game it is not so much the item, as any knife in this range or above sure as heck better perform, as the relationships made during the process. Whether the communication with custom makers or the help and communication with the phenomenal vendors such as Maxim, Jon etc that make or break the experience.

    I am really looking forward to some reviews and I hope they all make me put my foot in my mouth.

    Great! Thanks for running this passaround!

    BTW, how long should each person expect to keep the knife? The only reason I ask is because I'm travelling around Thanksgiving, so I'm hoping that my turn doesn't come up right around that time (Nov 21-25).

    I had one of these on hold from Maxim, but some ****head smashed into my car late night about a week ago. Cleaned out my savings doing repairs. So this is very appreciated on my part Ben!
