Thanks. You can see my frustrating in photographing these things -- curved surfaces in every dimension, reflective, etc.

knife photography is a pain :)

i had a couple pros explain various tips...

proper color background (blue/purple seems to do well), good lighting: usually means diffuse light box, and shoot from far enough away that you can zoom in, to flatten field, unless you have another way of doing that (i don't have patience to figure settings often enough)

and ... magic! yeah, that :)
