Well, what do you know. This blade shaves like nothing else now. Thanks, Yvsa! Now then. Initial impressions. As far as the knife goes . . . Dan, this blade is a work of art. The balance is awesome, the color of the blade is great . . . this knife has a soul, my friend. I must say I didn't like the concept of a mustard patina, but now that I see it on the knife, I really looks great. Matches the moose antler well. As far as flaws . . . Dan, you must be thinking of some flaws that require a microscope to spot. I certainly can't find any new ones, and the already-spotted ones are negligible. I absolutely love the sheath. It hangs on my belt quite well, and the retention is outstanding. Dwayne, you did an awesome job of dressing up the one Dan had already made--remind me to get you to make a sheath for me when I get a chance. Roadrunner's right though--this thing cuts paper like it's not there. I was giggling madly when I first tried it. I've *got* to learn how to put these convex edges on my blades. Just what I needed--another obsession. I already dread sending it off, and I just got it this morning! Well. It's mine for a week! Muahahaha!
