Jay, can’t thank you enough for taking such good care of my M3 knife.

The work is excellent; exceeding my minds greatest expectations, but will now take a while for me to get accustomed to. For many years, when I took her out of her sheath I saw a bright, shiny blade. The new gun-blued blade look is striking with the sharpened edges, but very different from what I can remember all these years. I swear I don’t remember the blade as being blued; certainly not to the extent it is now, even when I got her those many years ago. It was 1956, and she may have been heavily used before I got her even back then. Also, the leather handle looks almost new again. Thanks for that restoration. I wanted to keep it as much original as possible. You did that.

Most of us don’t know how to care for our knives: thank God I found you.
Your work is thorough and excellent, which should last me the rest of my life with this one.

Thanks again, I will stay in touch for future needs.

John Grier
