    I finally got the stencils I was waiting for and could finish the knife. It's the first one made and finished from ATS-34 stainless and heat treated by Paul Bos, and I wanted a stencil showing it was heat treated by Bos as he is the best there is. :)

    1/8" ATS-34
    3" Blade, 8 1/2" overall
    Green Micarta handles
    Stainless pins and lanyard tubing

    And the USPS was kind enough to let me know it shipped today.... :D

    Yea I started using usps.com to print the postage since it was such a zoo at the PO during the holidays. Now I just print it and drop it at the PO - much easier, and they have email notification!

    I must say, that's one of the few knives I've been sorry to let go of. It is #1 of the stainless knives! :)

    Oh yea, and in the letter with it I documented it as #1 of that model and the first stainless knife I completed. Someday when you're old and broke it might get you a can of cat food or something. :p

    Sweet! Talk about a mirror finish. I believe I could shave with that knife, or use it as a mirror to shave by. [beer]

    Valkman, you've really come a long way in a short period of time. Really good looking fit and finish on that knife.
