Just wanted to introduce myself to y'all. I'm not a maker but am actively engraged in engraving firearms & knives (I.E. , Bruce Bump's newest dagger) and have been doing so for 51 years. After all this time with guns, I have become very interested in the art of finely made knives ---- WOW, what an awakening. Never did I realize the skill required to produce a first class knife. Not only do the lines have to be exactly right (flow & form) but there are the other disiplines such as handle design & execution thereof. I could go on but y'all already know all the high points that could be discussed.
