Yesterday I was showing the pics of this knife to a friend and then I though in ask my wife to come and have a look and see what she would say. The very first thing she always asks is, "is that our timbers..?" I said no, they are not from us but the person that made this knife is an IAP member and he also makes pens..!

Off-course, the next thing she said was, "wow, I like that, very pretty, I betcha it feels nice in the hand and cuts well...!"

My response was that, yes, I agree 100%, it is certainly a pretty knife, this guy makes good work...!

I then took them off the screen and she left, she has absolutely no idea that this knife is hers and that she will get the parcel in her name, I'm looking forwards to see her face...!

Cheers
George

Hi Mike,

Worry no more, the knife has arrived today...!

Absolutely priceless the reaction of Merissa when she saw the parcel in her name, as predicted, she was very excited but she didn't open the box until she got home because, after she picked up the parcel at the local post office, she had to go to the town next door (25km away) to see the doctor and do some blood tests, she called from this town and that's when I knew that she got the parcel.

At home, she keeps asking, "who is this Mikel...?" while she would unwrap the box, when she saw the knife, she recognized it from the computer pics I had shown her a few weeks ago and put 2 and 2 together, with a big smile and said, "thank you, sweet heart...!", sure, I take that any time any day...!

Now, I only need to wait for her to cut herself with it, just a little nick will do...! "baptizing ritual"

Thanks Mike

Cheers
George

Glad it met expectations and finally arrived. I was getting worried it got stuck at customs.
