    This knife is wonderful! I especially like the unique fit and shape of the bolster/handle interface.

    Thanks fellas - much appreciated. FYI, the threaded section has to be made out of non heat treated stainless. If you heat treat the threaded section along with the knife, it will break when snugged up - too brittle. Furthermore, you can't soften it with a torch because CPM-154 air quenches itself.
