These new quick look videos Rock! It is so much nicer to see someone pick the knife up and show different angles rather than just look at a picture. It brings so much more nuance to the product your looking at! An excellent idea and Steve's format works great. And remember, you saw it here first at CKTG!

I really like these too. It's nice to hear how to pronounce some of the maker names as well.

Hey, thanks guys for the kind comments. That really means a lot hearing great feedback :-). I tend to use superlatives frequently in the Quick Looks, but Mark really does offer so many great knives right now from a lot of great blacksmiths and makers.

If anyone is interested, these are the latest batch I sent to Mark yesterday. These are direct links vs. product pages. Lots of Honesuki's in this batch.

Big thanks to you Steve. These are transforming the site and giving a whole extra level of service to customers that no knife site can currently touch. Looking forward to doing 500 more with you (I'm not joking).

LOL! It was nice knowing you Steve... I have a feeling we may not see you for a while. ;)

That sounds great to me! Nothing like being heads down, working with a bunch of incredible knives. It's hard to believe I ordered my first product from Mark and CKTG (Artifex AEB-L 210) just over a year ago. I've received quite the education since then 8-).

I know I had said I prefer the "knife in action" vids before and I still do, however the quick look vids offer so much more than just photos in that they give the potential buyer a MUCH better idea of what the knife looks like and a good size comparison when seen with someone's hand.. It really helps someone to visualize themselves with the knife. Plus you have a great voice for it, Steve! lol That might sound odd, but I think it is very important when a major part of the vid is someone talking to the viewers and telling them about the knives.

As for the earlier statement, I think maybe prefer is too strong a word here as both types of vids serve different purposes so it is really comparing apples to oranges. Plus I don't think it is quite accurate either, as if given the choice of both types of vids for a single knife, I ALWAYS watch both. lol So I can't honestly say I "prefer" one over the other since they are both great at what they do. Keep up the great vids Steve, and I'll keep watching them. ;)
