Thought I'd put some notes on what I did.
This was I think my third try of a "set-up" shot in a controlled environment [studio :) ]. In the garage, black sheet for the background. Actually bought a package of firewood because I didn't have a log around the house. The lights were garage work lights (100 watt incandescent bulbs I think). However, the blade of the middle knife was dark and I couldn't see the ridge going down the middle of it and I couldn't see the CRKT lettering. I grabbed a LED flashlight and shined it on the middle blade; thus the blue tinged lighting verses the warmer lighting at the top of the middle knife.

CRKT are by far my favorite knives.

Nice photograph. Would have liked it better if the left knife had the bottom on the top of the wood like the one on the right.

Nice light, good showing of the product. My only suggestion would be to show the whole wood block, maybe. Not sure, but it seems a bit incomplete this way. (Commenting only.)

This is lovely and sharp. Great image. Reminds me of Metalzoic from the British comic 2000AD. And Zoids. And my, thankfully, imprisoned siblings.
