This is a repost of a thread I started on the macro forum. I thought some of you who are lusting for a macro lens might not have seen it over there. I think I may have found a new gig for the Nikon 60mm micro. A friend of mine is a member of a knife club... a large group of well heeled collectors. He was showing me some of precious blades when I came up with the idea of photographing rare knives, not documentary for insurance purposes, but for framable prints. He lent me a few rare specimens to test the concept.

However, I captured the maker's mark with the 60mm micro. I'm making Ed prints so he can take them to his next club meeting and test the market for me.
