The post office out-did themselves rushing this package to me today - wow! These Champlins just keep getting better. Notice the printing on the back of the rosewood knife, and the long match-striker pulls on the main blades! The blades even have individual "pockets" to rest in.

Pictures of the knives are really fantastic guys! Here are my specimens. They say a camera never lies, but pictures do not do the knives justice IMO. I'm really taken with the way the stag has come out on my knife. Mike told me I'd be happy and boy was he right! The tones on the rosewood blend in nicely. Thanks to Mike and Derek and all at GEC for going all out on these!!
