    Most Excellent, my friend!! You did a great job. And I appreciate the shout out - thank you. This is probably the one you were talking about - I love it (and kept the blue... for now):

    Yah, I think the 'Zaan is next :D After that, I need to make the denim strop for the Rocksteads.

    Speaking of which...I couldn't be happier with them (though I've really only been carrying the ZDP-189 version). It's just a superb knife, no doubt about it. I honestly thought I'd feel a bit of a let down, that I'd bought into the hype a bit and would have to come down to earth, so to speak (maybe even a bit hard). However, I didn't find this to be the case - it's an absolutely excellent knife, end stop (no real qualifiers or regrets attached). I'm hooked and will likely get another at some point (Chi? Shun? Higo X-IW?). Rocksteads and Bing's knives are my new favorites.

    Thanks Derek - though, I must say, I've still got some work to do to get mine up to your standard - wow! what a job you did :thumbup:

    wow I love how those Sebenzas turned out - now I might just have to do this to one of mine.

    Did you guys temporarily reassemble the knife (without the blade) and use a wooden block to keep the lock bar flush with the rest of the scale?

    Derek - might ping you later for the exact steps.

    That's great to hear the Rocky's met your expectations. Ever heard the saying "A man's man"? I think a Rockstead could be called "A knife-guy's knife":D

    I have yet to experience Bing's work, but will do so eventually. Right now I'm hoping to work out a nice folder design with Peter Martin. His shop is only about an hour away from where I live, and he attends a local Wisconsin knife show every year. His work is quite nice:)
