Today, I got my knife from the trade. Frankly, I think I got the coolest knife in the whole swap. This is beautiful. Here's a picture:
The picture doesn't really do it justice. The edge is wonderfully straight and very sharp. The stone has a slight translucence that just makes it almost other-worldly. The fit of blade to handle is very tight. I'm delighted.
Now that the summer is just about over, I think I'll have a little more time to work on some personal projects, so this blog will be updated slightly more often. I hope.
