I haven't been to the Medallion Toolworks site in quite a while and was there looking over it a couple nights ago... All I can say is Wow! Ed Paik is certainly making some of the finest, if not the finest saws available today. I really hope I can bring my saw up to his level in terms of fit and finish. I also admire Ed for using french polish on his handles, I've been wanting to try that and have done french polish on a small piece several years back and will try it now. AWESOME looking handles, I'd be curious how many coats of shellac and how the wear is . Is this one of the finest looking saws EVER?
