If you push it back a couple weeks I'll probably join, I've got a lot to do before Christmas.

I like the blue toned scales.  The two wood scales are nice ... but ... BLUE wins!

I knew you would say that, and if you were participating in the Christmas swap I'd put on for sure.

Thanks guys, swamp the scales on that one are buckeye and blue, I agree the background isn't ideal, I think lighting was more the issue though, it was just a quick picture I took right before I mailed it out.

Anyways, some more of the swap knife here's a picture of straightening post heat treat I always seem to get a bit of a warp in chef's knives I think it's just the metal bending from its own weight when it's in the heat treat oven.
Here are also some handle material choices I'm open to putting on if anyone has a preference, I also have a good amount of stabilized buckeye and resin hybrids mostly in blue or green.

Honestly not much, my birthday is coming up too and my wife keeps asking what I want but really, pretty much all my desires are met and for the few things I would like I'm either very picky so it's better I pick them out or they're very expensive which is why I don't have them, and they're also very specific.
