Loris, from what I can see, it is a very nice knife, but the grainy, dark pictures don't show it well. However, if you're able to take better pictures - especially outside with some natural light - it would probably help you show that knife off much better!

I did my homework! :p
It was polished to 600# again and buffes with two components for a pretty shine. Sharpened with fine ceramic and stropped.
