Sounds like a good option to go with my work uniform
The Plaza last doesn't do much for me. The Leydon last is pretty sleek if that's the look you want. I like the Barrie for overall shape and comfort. I have no experience with the Modified or Grant last . . . yet.
8-12 months isn't terrible. Custom knives are worse--I've been waiting since October 2010 for one, and it could be another year or two for all I know. I know guys that have been waiting over four years.
