    Don't you destructively test the 5th knife (the 90° bend)? Or do you not dress the destructive testing knife?

    Beautiful knives, of course, Dave -- congrats!!

    Well Done! I saw that photo in another thread. I didn't realize they were yours, as I didn't put your full name with your forum name together. Got a pic of your performance test knife too?

    I noticed that too.

    Perhaps David could do a forum name change?
    It will help people find you.

    (Yes that's ironic coming from me, but I have no intention of ever selling.)

    Thanks for All your Comments!!!
    Ryan, They will give you feed back after they are done Judging your pass or fail.
    Lazlo, Before you get judged on the five knives you have to do a performance test with a separate knife. the last step of which is a 90deg bend.
    Phil, I will be putting in a user name change and leave my alias loussharp1 under it at the top.
    Here is a pic of my bent test knife.



    Many Thanks Again,
    Dave
