    This will be forever called the "What Could Have Been" forum knife.

    Talk about a knife in the back, eh? Sorry that happened. Not my favorite way to see things end.

    At least one person added a vote to Ironwood last minute, too. It was at 148 until the wire.

    I wonder how many folks lost a vote because they were a second too late?

    For the majority. I think the polished bolsters might have been important for a few. I certainly prefer them.
    Well, I only lost 3.5 of the polls! Not bad.

    It appears a few people were making sure there wasn't a tie, I'd think a tie would have been the worst-case scenario.

    It sure wasn't me, but I could have won a lot of money betting on that happening.

    It's all good! Got a sweet knife design and I can say hey look at my reproduction of a classic! I'm ready for this dang thing to get in my hands. Gonna be a cool knife to cart around. I'm gonna brush the bolsters though...

    Poor ebony and bloodwood. It's hard to be a third party candidate with swing vote potential.

    I totality would have voted for coco or blood wood with polished. But I couldn’t vote for unpolished wood and satin metal.

    Ultimately I decided to go blackwood because the shield that was obviously going to win looked better on that to my eye and because the polished bolsters look much better than the brushed, especially with the northfield lined bolsters. I would have much preferred bloodwood or kingwood, or really any wood with more obvious grain and polished bolsters.

    Oh well, it shall be a beauty I'm sure. Hopefully nickel pins become a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.

    Why on earth would that make any difference? I just don't see it.
    Just don't park on the poll to vote watch?
