    That's some nice work Sharpeblades. Do you do all your own leather work too?

    Just curious why you chose stainless over high carbon. Great looking knife!

    I love the looks of this combo. Like Okie, I prefer carbon steel. Of course, I could change my mind on SS if you wanted to donate it for T&E ;) (still trying!)

    (Seriously, this is one is the best one you've shared so far. Size, grind, finger grove- I like it all.)

    He probably learned, like all knifemakers, that 90% of customers want stainless. I went to all stainless once I learned this, except for some D2. But CPM154 isn't just some stainless - it's a super steel that will perform very well.

    I'll take it for testing - love it!
