So recently I had Alto make a few knives.  Took them to work to show them off and perhaps drum up new clients.  Everyone that held them raved on the handles and how they felt perfect and made for their hand.  Blades are great of course but dude seems to master the handles equally.

Reading this makes me smile real big. I put a lot of time into finalizing my handle contouring, especially on the heavy duty pieces like your Cleaver and Nessmuk. Anything where chopping might come into play, the handle is of prime importance. For handles like those, I stop and check the grip at least 100 times each during the shaping and polishing process for comfort.

One of the docs I work with kept going on about the nexker handle.  Potential customer.

Guest appearances by my Bushkill knives, the block I made for them, and a rare cameo by Mrs. Bun!

Thank you! I thought you'd appreciate it :-)

Middle left is an 1940's Gustav Emil Erm brisket slicer, and middle right is a 1943 Shapleigh's hammer forged butcher that belonged to my wife's late father. I re-handled the butcher with stabilized spalted pecan not long ago, the original material was beyond rescue.

If I requested a mail-in ballot, is that a go or no go?

I think that would technically be a no-go unless you're active duty or an working away from home. But if IronHands is cool with it, I'm cool with it. Totally his call!
