    Great to see you with your own forum Mark! Thought I'd drop by and give you a big double :thumbup::thumbup: for your recent hard work you provided for us.

    Mark you went way beyond what I could have asked for and provided the exact product I was looking for in a timely manner. I'm a hard person to please and by declaring to you that I'll be back means you nailed it son. :)

    For you guys considering a waterjet service, don't think twice about using these guys. Call Aldo, have him ship your steel directly there, send over your designs (they couldn't be worse than my drawings - Mark will hook you up), pay the man, and get to making your knives - couldn't be easier!

    Thanks for the recommendation Dave!
    Don't for forget we can squeeze a smaller paring knife in between your blanks on the next run.
    And post some pictures when you get handles on a few.

    Yeah thanks for that recommendation on using up the extra steel on the leftover skeleton while you're cutting the next run. This is a great idea that I will be sure to use! :)

    I just finished up this one. The knife is a 240mm gyuto (Japanese style chef's knife) with a western handle in ringed gidgee (from Burl Source) & a black ash burl ferrule. Liners are black G-10, stainless pins, & tapered tang.

    Using your waterjet service has without a doubt been a major plus in my production effeiciency. It's allowed me to go to the shelf & grab 'n go. I hope you guys continue to provide this service for a long time to come.

    Thanks again,
    Dave
