    I like the way the book-matching on the scales worked out there. The wee knots are almost perfectly symmetrical.

    Everything part of that knife build looks well executed! Well done once again, Rob! How long is the actual cutting edge of the blade? Three inches or so?

    Did you laminate the wood with a copper spacer? Aside from the Loveless bolts (I loathe the look of them) it's a beauty.

    Has Hitachi cleared up the QC issues of years past with their ATS34? There was a time that there were lots of small inclusions in the steel but you don't seem to have had that problem. Seems that was when people really started abandoning ATS34 for 154CM.
