    Does this work? If so, I'll let you know how to do it.
    I'm loving the profile BTW, and the handle - what wood is that?

    I can see the pics in Rick's posts. Not in Jess's.

    Rick, if you'll pm the steps you are taking to post pics, I'll idiot proof them and post them in the support section. The only way I can post pics now is to get them on my phone and use the phone app to post. Can't do a thing with the desk top version since Dropbox removed the "copy public link" function.

    Dave, all I did was follow Kippington's instructions in Post #8.

    I still see all of the pics kippington and Rick posted, none from jessf. Must be some small error in which url is being copied by jessf?

    Beautiful knife BTW! New mokume?

    Testing

    [​IMG]

    Assuming the pic is still above, on chrome on my android tablet I long clicked the pic in Rick's post, choose open image in new tab. Then copied the entire url from the address box.

    Maybe it'll disappear in an hour like jessf attempts? Dunno

    I can still see jessef's images in posts #11 and #19. Maybe because I'm logged into Google?

    Maybe that's it? I saw a little [x] "missing pic" symbol, and now I just logged into my gmail account and it shows a big (-) "minus sign in a circle" kind of missing pic instead... weird.

    On the knife, kudos, I really dig the aesthetics! :doublethumbsup:

    I'm curious whether the edge profile is as flat as it looks in the pic. I once thought it would be super cool to have a gyuto with a very very flat profile, but then I got a custom santoku made that way and didn't like it personally. I guess I'm not much of a chopper, otherwise it should've worked I think...

    I'm partial to a flatter profile on a shorter knife. A 10" blade might offer up a similar curve but then you got all that blade hanging out there. Ain't no body got no time for that. Profile is also something i can alter over time with sharpening. Of the three chef's i've made of this style, i'm partial to this one. The handle has more junk in the trunk which works for me as i store my knives in cook books with the handle to the sky. The kardashianesque protuberance gives you something firm to reach for.
