    Always think of your fellow knife makers as partners in the search for the perfect blade, not as people trying to compete with you and your work!

    Very nice, Gouge! Both knives are nice, and I especially like that tribal-looking scrimshaw, it really complements that design. [​IMG]

    Nice looking knives. As L6Steel stated, you definitely have a "leg up".

    BTW, my wife grew up in Hampton, she went to Pembroke High School.......a looooong time ago (I looked over my shoulder before typing that!)
