Good luck Rade! You've made a beautiful knife, and it's a pity it's going to get beat up. We're all pulling for you!

That's the knife for the cutting / bending part of the test? Very fancy for a knife which is going to be destroyed, no?

Good luck Rade! Not that you need luck, I think you're plenty good enough without it

That's got to be one of the nicest test knives I've ever seen!

Re: Rade, MS...


JUST GOT HOME AND HAD A BITE TO EAT AND CHECK MY E-MAIL. DON FOGG IS A TRUE MASTER AND A GREAT HUMAN BEING. WE DID EVERY THING BY THE BOOK AND I EVEN MADE A DAMASCUS BILLET WHILE I WAS THERE. MY KNIFE DID A GREAT JOB AND PASSED ALL THE TEST-------THE FIRST STEP IS HISTORY NOW ALL I HAVE TO DO IS MAKE 5 KNIVES FOR THE JUDGES TO EVALUATE AT THE BLADE SHOW.

THANK ALL OF YOU FOR THE FOR THE FAITH AND CONFIDENCE AND SUPPORT. THIS TEST WAS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME. AND A SPECIAL THANKS TO "BILLYBOB FOR ALLOWING ME TO USE HIS SHOP AND EQUIPMENT-----THANKS,THANKS--REGARDS RADE
