    I can find lots of stuff that I need to improve on, but I’m pleased with the way this one turned out. This was the most difficult knife I have made so far. Also the first try with my homemade light box (I hate photography) :)
    Thanks for looking

    +1! I really like the knife. From the pictures, I don't see anything that needs improvement.

    Looks like your lightbox works as well. The pictures are sharp and evenly lit -- just what you want. The highlights are a little blown out (pretty common when shooting such a reflective surface) but you can fix that by adjusting the exposure down a little bit.

    Thanks guys
    On a unrelated topic is anyone selling their knives in the US? I was wondering what kind of hoops need to be jumped through?
