Will this be the shortest elapsed time between a catalog coming out and a model not in the catalog being released?
Our reason is quite satisfied, in 999 cases out of every 1000 of us, if we can find a few arguments that will do to recite in case our credulity is criticized by someone else. Our faith is faith in someone else's faith, and in the greatest matters this is most the case.

Yea, I thought about doing a little small whittling like that with mine, but I may opt for something big.

I was just looking at the pictures in this link and I was wondering, does anyone know the best way to get drool and slobers off of a keyboard and do they sell the stuff in bulk.

I beams are used for a number of reasons the most pertinent being that they have a MUCH higher strength to weight ratio, so while not as rigid the reduced mass may make them capable of holding more weight and allows buildings to be much larger. Anyway the point is that a fuller does NOT make the blade stronger, it makes it slightly less so in most cases, but the weight reduction is considered worth it.
Another misconception, mayonnaise on an I beam does NOT add any strength or flexiblility to it at all.

Awesome. And on a side note I believe that a college education for your only son is way overated.

Sick joke on my part. Sorry, if I hurt anyone's emotions regarding this blade.
From what I read and the history of Ed's designs it really looks like a winner I may have to jump on.
Even at a cost in the 300-350 range.

Even though I don't think sharpening will be much trouble with the use of diamond stones. I can imagine how others will react trying to sharpen 3v.

I'm pretty anxious to try it out. I can't remember who i was reading about but some knife maker said he has bent blades 90 degrees and back in a vice and the blade didn't snap. I'm betting the first complaint will be "3v won't hold a hair popping edge for crap!" lol.

Actually, if it was 400, I am glad that it was a joke.

Wait. It's winter and 2012 here. Did I miss the launch of the Tuff? :) I can't wait to see this one in person.
