    I love it. It is perfection. It will ship Monday:Applause:.

    Final thoughts:

    I've been privileged to have worked with some of the best knifemakers out there. The experience with Terry is one of the best I've had. His communication is fantastic. The time it took from start to finish is top tier (obviously it all depends on his workload), and the quality/skill is second to none.

    The updates he provided to make this post possible is truly appreciated. I think it is extremely important for people to see the process that these knifemakers go through. The hard work, the cuts/scrapes, the dedication. This is their livelihood and it should be recognized.

    ***I'll post more pictures after it arrives with other knives in my collection

    Each picture he sent was about 3 to 4 megs. They were huge and extremely detailed. I had to bring each one down to about 1 to 2 for it to be able to upload on the forum.

    I'll get the specs of the knife when it arrives (weight, length, etc). I know that's what you care about Buddha:madaddy:.

    ***Now I need to track down another knifemaker (no luck so far)

    Yeah, really sounds like the Typical Terry experience. Lots of great communication, build pics, allows input into the design. A true custom maker.

    Oh shoot. I forgot to post the specs. Terry said it was 5.86 oz. However, I weighed it at 5.6 oz.

    The addition of the clip and latch was my request (for me that's mandatory in a custom collector piece). So without those two things I would guess it to come out around 5.5 oz.

    ***I'm too lazy to take it out and measure it right now LOL

    Beautiful knife - congrats!

    ***Shouldn't the latch and clip be on opposite handles though?

    Says who? If Terry wants them both on the same handle then they should be on the same handle LOL.

    ***I'm taking better pictures (but still not to your level)
