Hi, Since you have only a small number of threads here, but are rapidly gaining popularity, I wanted to drop in and say "hello" and also ask about the design of the Azrael. I have owned and trained with Douk Douks for a long time and have always loved their sturdy composition and aggressive design (attached are some pics). The Azrael looks like a Douk Douk on steroids, with better steel, greater ease of opening, and framelock instead of no lock at all. I am not sure if you used the Douk Douk for inspiration or just worked at your drafting board until you came upon this design yourself, but I have to say I love it and am very impressed and am glad you are doing it with regularity - that means I should be able to pick one up in the near future (if I am quick to the draw, that is...). You should really let Laci Szabo know what you're up to, he would love your work!
