    Nice.
    The headstock is shaped like a lot of the rake-style lockpicks.
    I like it.
    12,000 grit? Smooth.
    That's the grit I use for final hone on my straight razors.
    I can't wait to hear it.

    I handed it to the man and we're setting up some recording time in the studio. Film clip later this year. I'll keep you posted...
