1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Have you tried ceramic knives? Zirconium oxide ones don't have to be sharpened, and they can cut paper all day.

    No, never tried. But since I am now a man who can do his own sharpening (since a week...), which obviously is awesomely awesome, I don't want any ceramic crap. :)

    Not really. Besides the cool factor (well, you know), you can get steel sharper than ceramic. And it's much harder to break. And it looks better. :)

    Agree completely - more like saying you prefer a traditional mechanical watch to quartz. By the way - learning to make them is even more fun than learning to sharpen them.

    These will be my last big purchase for a while - I need to hunker down on the finances and clean up some overdue stuff - so I decided to go out with a small bang.

    C&J Ludlows. These babies on their way to poppa:

    Some might say that between my RL Lindrick and Marlow (both by C&J) and my C&J Cliffords, that these might be redundant. To which I would reply: bah!

    Mark this day, this time. In the not too distant future, you will recall it as the epoch for when all your previous shirts - ones that you probably liked a lot - slowly began seeming less and less attractive. This is how it starts; and realize that, while it might slow down at times it never ends. Repeat for each area of clothing you start upgrading.

    That said, congrats!!!!

    I'm have the exact opposite problem with most of the Italian makers and my shorter arms. If I get them altered, I lose about half of the sleeve gauntlet and it looks pretty stupid. Not to mention I have just eliminated any chance of resale.
