    I don't know how Flitz metal polish works its magic, but it sure does seem like magic!!! :eek: I only spent a few minutes (tops) hand-polishing on each mosaic pin, and they now shine like mirrors! :cool: It's impossible to capture with indoor lighting. I tried...

    You take much better photos than I do... you lookin' for a part-time job? Will you work for steel, not cash? :p :D

    lol, and these were taken with my iPhone... :eek: I did have to whittle these down from the 60 or so I actually took. Would have used my real camera, but wifey had it with her away from the house. Regarding that last part, I sure would. If you're serious James, just let me know. :thumbup:

    I wish I could be serious about that, because honestly taking pics is not really what I'm into. But sadly, the numbers just don't add up. At this point, shipping my knives back-and-forth for photos would either drive me into the poorhouse or raise prices beyond what I feel is fair to my customers.

    So for the foreseeable future, y'all are just gonna have to rely on my half-vast pics of new stuff... and hope for better pics from happy clients.

    Therefore, I really do appreciate it when you all contribute your own pics! And I will ask one thing more from you...

    Let's see 'em after you get 'em dirty. Scratched-up, used and even abused! I make cutting implements and working tools... not wallhangers.

    Nothing pleases me more than seeing one of my knives all dirty and gunked-up with sap after building a shelter or gathering kindling/processing wood for a campfire, or even being *gasp* bloody after someone used it to clean a fish or game animal. I am certainly not offended when someone takes a snapshot of one of my chef's knives covered in tomato goo or cheese residue or whatever. That's why I make them.

    If you forgot to clean it off after using it, did it get tarnished? Did it get duller after x-amount of use? Did it get a chip in the edge when you used it for this that or the other, or not? Don't be shy! Let's see it!

    I am not afraid, and it will not hurt my feelings if one of my knives fails to meet your expectations. I enjoy real-world feedback, and I need it to improve. Thanks in advance! :)
