Well here she is!!!
She is even more awesome in person than in J's pics or these crappy ones of mine. She's incredibly lighter in the hand than you would expect from a dagger this long. The attention to detail is phenomenal on the knife and sheath. When I saw the parcel pick-up notice in my mailbox this afternoon, I swear I felt like I was 10 years old again on Xmas morning! Thanks to everyone for your congratulations, to Ron for having the all-star best frickin' kickass forum on the nets (thats JD beeatches), and especially to Master Smith J. Neilson and Tess for blowing my mind with this awesome piece!
