A little while back I asked for insight in Stowa watches and thought I’d share my score:

You can’t tell from the picture, but the handles are blued but only glint blue at the right angle and in the right light. It’s a very subtle charm. Like most people,I justify all my expensive purchases by immediately loving them, but I truly think this one is a long-term winner. I knew guys here would have impeccable tastes; surely there is an overlap between passion for amazing knives and pretty much every other aspect of life.
Elegant! And I always like a nice display back.

Hope it gives you many years of enjoyment.

Outstanding!
I'm curious to see what this becomes.
Usually I associate keyholes with a metal bolster fitting a wooden handle...

This was going to be a fun Friday project but it turns out to be a "five beer" project which, for safety reasons, has to be spread out over a couple of days... So next Friday!

It looks like a dual satin blade with the upper part done by Mark and the lower part done by you. Maybe it's just my old eyes and the shadows from that top shelf but one can only hope :) Oh, and I just noticed the drop in the point too :thumbsup:

We should do a Bladeforums movie where we use our K18s to kill marauding hordes of coronaviruses. Jet Li can play me.

Hmm, interesting! Maybe we can convince Nathan to agree to be played by Timothy Olyphant, Jason Momoa to be casted as Mark and I'll take Harrison Ford in his younger days; I think that he's accomplished enough to play me!
