    Truly breathtaking. Simple design, with soft, elegant lines, and precisely made. Well done!

    It is a stunner. Considering our logo, would make the ideal forum knife. Could you face turning out a hundred or so?

    The pics don't do it justice, this is a stellar piece with alot of detail that doesn't show in the pics. For instance the milled liners to prevent scratches appearing on the tangs.

    Dear god!! 100x40 hours per knife = 2 years to complete them all That's if I was working on them full time.. plus to make that feasible say $3.5K a knife to earn a living from doing that full time for 2 years. I still think I would get burned out doing them all.

    Creative stuff isn't meant to be done as a full time job, is it? Interesting to hear your time estimate, one week per knife. I wouldn't have known where to start guessing.

    It was a fantastic knife and I can say that from the perspective of a folder maker! Fully deserved to win the 'best folder award'. I had a 'play' with it and would have been very happy to take it home!
