Here are a few of the mule from Farid, made of CPM REX 121:

The effect with the one above is really cool - it looks like there are big chunks missing from the blade. It's actually just the way the finger grooves come up to meet the edge and are reflected.

This last image isn't super impressive, but I like the look of it with the steel dust and soft reflection. This is just after the 600# diamond stones.

Yikes! Those are spectacular shots of that highly reflective edge you put on the Farid blade! I can't believe it took only 4 minutes to raise burrs on that formidable steel edge. I look forward to getting my folder from Farid hopefully sometime in May. Who knows?! He is very mysterious about his work flow so one never knows. ;)
You are up late tonight boss! Can't sleep? Me too! :lol:

Cheers

Thanks Leo. I was just up a little late waiting for Kay to get back from chorus and thought it would be fun to post some pics from the week. I was actually inspired after reading Rlb's post and seeing his pictures here: Mirror Edge PM2

It took a few hours to do all five of them, especially reprofiling them down to 15°. Once that was done it went pretty fast. I guess maybe 3 hours total.
