It has always been my intention to build that which beguiles. Sometimes I'm more successful at that than others.
Hey, I stand behind my work, and it makes me happy to make people happy, so I was just doing for you what I'd do for anyone. Hope you've been enjoying your replacement.
Chisel grinds are one of those things - guys seem to either love them or hate them. I love them, so that's what I build. If you always do what you love, you'll always do your best work. That said, guys have been on me since the beginning to do stuff V-ground and stuff in stainless. I wanted to give the people what they wanted, but I also needed to stay true to what I was doing. Thus, it was necessary to establish a clear delineation between the two lines. So customs are high carbon non-stainless and chisel grinds as they have always been, and mid-techs are stainless and V-ground. Now I've got something for everybody.
I'll do my best to hold one back for you, but I do have a show coming up at the end of the month, and nearly 2/3 of this batch is sold already. Also, these are a limited production item. Once they're all gone, I'll be moving on to a different design for the next mid-tech.
I feel you about keeping one's insides on the inside. LOL!
Plural for Colubris is Colubris.
Thanks for the kind words and the support, buddy. That really means a lot to me, and I'm glad you think so highly of these knives.
