    This thing is awesome. However, I think Alan's best work is the knife I received yesterday.

    This is exactly what I had in mind. In discussing with my wife and our finances, I'm going to hold off on ordering for now, but when I'm ready, I'll know precisely what to order. Thank you for taking the time to discuss this. I will end up with this knife, just not right now.
