    Dealing with Dave at Pro-Tech is one of the greatest joys I have in this hobby of ours.
    He never fails to go the extra mile , whether it is a troop knife run , or a forum knife deal.
    He brings a passion and a vision that is unmatched to every project he touches.
    I have an idea.........a literal rough sketch.
    He wraps his head around it and makes it reality.
    And this little project is no different.
    Our Daughter is getting married Sunday and I wanted to give them a wedding present that would mean something.
    She has a pretty fair collection of knives already..........courtesy of Jimmy_Mac to a large extent , but I have added pieces too.
    Her fella doesn't have a collection , but he has admired some of my nicer pieces and is a good candidate to catch the sickness.
    I think this might push him over the edge.
    I suggested the idea to Dave and provided a Claddagh image to work from.
    This is the test burn for the scales.
    The finished product will be in presentation boxes and will be very special.
    Usually , it is the women crying at the wedding , but I think it will be me crying that I have to give these away this time around. :bwah::bwah::bwah:

    Is the placement of the image and their names on the insert set ? To me if they was moved toward the pivot a little more I think it would look more balanced, maybe close the space just a tad between the image and their names.
