Wow - GREAT Pic!

Can't wait to see the real thing!

Thanks for the preview.

Spark, that is one good looking blade! Great work making it happen! Thanks to all the staff, Sal and his crew too! I can't wait! Maybe I'll lay off badgering Sal for a smaller military for a few days... Nah...
All I can say is, "Ooooooh. Aaaaahhhhhh."


Live fast, die young, and leave a good looking corpse, it's the only way to win. ;)

I placed an order last week! Will we get any sort of official confirmation that our order has been received! Thanks, JEFF
For some odd reason, I had it in my head that the color of this knife was going to be NAVY blue.

Oh well, mine is bought! Great scan, too, Spark.
Well, I just got new wallpaper for my desktop
I was wondering the same thing that J AlanClay is, will we get an order confirmation? Maybe you could send out a mass-emailing of all you recv'd so far? I just didn't want to miss out on that beautiful knife!

This picture was taken with a Kodak DC-260 digital camera, not a scanner, just FYI. I just happened to get the positioning "just right" when I set up the shot. I literally put the knife down, turned on the camera, took the picture, and walked off, easiest picture I've taken in a while.

NamVietVo- sorry, but the false edge is exposed, so if you sharpen it, you're likely to cut yourself/ cloths

I'll send out mass order confirmations at the end of the week, I have a mass mailing to send later tonight, and I don't want to create extra work for myself. If you see the "Thank you" page when you place your order, though, we got it.
