    I hate to tell you, but I think your warranty is void :)

    Thanks so much for the kind words bro. It was my honor and pleasure to work with a customer-become-friend. So cool to work on a project with Jake too!

    I know I pushed you to do some seemingly impossible things, and just really appreciate your dedication to have this rebladed Classic a thing of perfection. Big things are on the horizon for REK...so exciting.
    As excited as I am to have this knife in hand...our friendship and mutual respect is what made it fun!!
    Looking forward to where your talents take you next in this ride of knives!!

    I know you would love that!! Gimme at least a week with it. ;)

    My pleasure! Video link up!

    Thank you.

    No problem! How long it took? From mailing from my door to having it back...about a year and a half. Worth the wait.

    Thanks! The expense will stay with me for now. ;) Thanks for digging it. :)

    Correct and thank you. In hand...WOW! Pics cannot do this justice, however I will try to capture it in photos in the coming days.

    Jake is a world class engraver...just phenominal.

    Thanks Peter! I know right? No washer replacements...no warranty. Lol. Oh well, i knew that going into it. Could you imagine? “Hi CRK, can I get a spa treatment done on my Classic?” Haha.

    I adore this thing. I had no idea such a conversion could be done. Now I'm looking into what it'll take to turn my rainbow Sebenza into a front flipper.

    I dig the presentation handle machine hole giving a peep to the blade pattern. It's glorious...& it's a hole...

    Now that is a work of art. Stunning piece !!!
    There’s no doubt that is one of a kind. Are you looking to adopt an older kid ? :oops:

    :D Love your post! It really is something else. :) The craftsmanship is incredible. Thank you Kyle.

    Thank you, Ajack60! No joke. Hmmm, adoption...could be an option. Ahaha.

    I agree, Marcus! Thank you.
