This knife has me totally baffled. I have a lot of mother of pearl handled knives but this knife displays a very "smoky" appearance that I don't think is natural. There is no apparent sharpening of…Continue

Don, thanks for joining the Arsenal group.
Sorry I missed you the other night, Don. I usually leave my browser open, so I'm guessing the site was reporting me as being online even though I was in bed sleeping. I've been checking if you're on whenever I hop on, but you haven't been. Congratulations on being featured. I've been enjoying your posts in the Queen group.
