    Outa my league but I will say the person who winds up with it in their collection will be hard pressed to find a knife worthy of being displayed next to that one ! Stunning.

    I wish I could but I can't.

    Incidentally, it looks like you are due for another trip to the nail salon.

    I have to say, after getting most of the way through your WIP thread that this knife is definitely worth every penny for the time that you put into them. Even if I had money and bought it I don't think any of my uncouth friends would appreciate it unless I sat them all down and made them view your process. Awesome.
