Gorgeous work.

You going to use them or just drool on them? Either way, they'll require some maintenance. Drool causes corrosion.

They are most defintely users and really work well. The spacer is a polymer material that Larry makes himself and molds, then grinds.

Good for you.

They're beautiful, but I'd use 'em too. I own a lot of knives, but none of them are to look at.
