Bruce, that's a nice blade shape. Just enough belly to meet any need and the clip gives it a point that I would find many uses for. The grind is a lot more work, but we've seen your ability to pull it off in high style. This particular one has file work that would be easy to keep clean. Nice touch.

Sometimes you hate to think about the hours you have in a knife. This knife should command a higher price to cover that. The more you make, the faster you'll get at it of course.

Keep that long ricasso for choking up.

I would think that more than one type of scabbard would be possible to suit the buyer.

Can't wait to see the next example.
