Well first of all, no apology necessary. I thought it would be a cool little knife is all. The happy face was also to show I was joking. For all of us life gets in the way from time to time. I personally went through 6 years of traveling for work over 120 days a year, hardly seeing family, barely doing anything fun so I can appreciate your position. Sometimes life just gets in the way. I'm making knives as an escape from some of the pressures in my job. I have a bunch of direct reports and about 75 people on my team and there are days when I look back on what I've done and there isn't one tangible item that I can show for my efforts. Yes, I answered a lot of questions and I think I did a good job but with making a knife, even if it's not perfect it's something I can hold up as an outcome of my efforts. Plus it's a good reason to drink a beer in the shop (frankly, drinking beer is the best reason...I can BUY knives). Take care and I look forward to seeing what you come up with when you have time but don't feel pushed just by my comment. Take care.
