Thanks guys, working hard some days, trying to enjoy life others.

I've been on hiatus from the forum and other things as well; Trying to get life organized, a clearing of the plate was needed, took on waaay too many new projects over the past few years and it finally caught up with me. Got another week or 2 to catch up completely and then it's back to the grind! :)

These blades perform incredibly good, really really good. Every single one of these will be ground to less than .010 behind the edge before it even gets sharpened, ensuring every knife will perform nearly identical. These are little bit thinner behind the edge and have a little more spine stiffness than the last batch, 2 things that I wanted to change after using them for a while. I know making them this thin is going to result in some chipped knives possibly, but I'd rather the performance than the toughness anymore. If you are buying a high-hardness custom knife, then chances are you already know not to treat it like a screw-driver and such. ..... (I say this now... lol)

Anyhow, I'll get full measurements of the 2 that are getting shoes put on today. Looking forward to selling these babies :)

Like to see a short video of one of these when you get them finished.

I almost snatched one up out of the last batch but I pulled the trigger on a Fowler instead but I may have to get one now

I've been wanting to try a 52100 knife. If you make one with a handle as bad-ass as my s35vn 230 I don't know if I could resist!

Shaun - make sure you send me a primo looker from the bunch for a Quick Look video and some nice photos ;-). My offer still stands.
