Thanks to @Von Gruff for this finely-made knife. The buffalo-horn handle fits perfectly in the hand, while the overall design has a perfect balance. The knife has an instant heirloom quality.

It arrived two days ago Dewald. Just getting over a 2000km drive at the end of the week. so will be back to the shed next week to catch up on the order book.I like the subtle streaks. Less says more. Looking forward to owning one with the blister maple handle when your stock arrives.

Day one - Lawrence to Hanmer is 580km (363mile)
@Von GruffDay one - Lawrence to Hanmer is 580km (363mile)
Day two - Hanmer to Brightwater and return is 280 each way so 560km (350mile)
Day three - Hanmer back to Lawrence is another 580km (363 mile)
Day 4 - Lawrence to Dunedin and return is 94km each way so 188km (118mile)
Total for just here to there and back is 1908 KM (1193mile) without the side trips etc that we did on the way and a great deal of the run from Hanmer to brightwater is the Lewis Pass through the Southern Alps and up the long Murcheson Gorge which all has a multitude of tight windy road with many many corners in the 35 to 55km speeds (20 to 35mph) and a few [places where it is one way due to the narrow bridges etc so the actual milage does not fully reflect the driving time and concentration needed to do these roads.
