Congratulations indeed! We know you can fix any knife, but it is nice to have this official acknowledgement. Glad this thread was resurrected as I missed it in 2014.

Bill, I remember you from forums in the early 2000s when I believe you had just gotten your Leveratto produced. I was hugely impressed then! You're a living inspiration to guys like me with a Harbor Freight belt sander and a dream. Although this is just a bit belated: Congratulations and my sincere Thanks!
