    After a long wait, the new vise has finally arrived.

    It was worth the wait.

    That is all.

    :D

    Gee Eric, I wish you had of told me what vise you ordered. I have one I would have sold to you at a good price and you wouldn't have waited so long.

    Geeezus! I told you the elves from Rivendale made the thing! I have honestly never seen a vise like that before in my life. I can't imagine you using it to tie flies!!

    That's not a vise... that's a sculpture. No wonder it took so long.

    OOOOOOMMMMMMGGGGGG!!!!!!

    After months of sitting at his tying desk drooling over and admiring
    his newest possession Big E may actually tie a fly on it.

    But seriously, congratulations! It indeed looks like a masterpiece.

    Congratulations on a fly tying treasure. As an added benefit, this thread should help some of us get the thumbs-up for comparatively humble purchases.

    Incredible. My jaw literally dropped when I saw that thing. Your vise is certain to be a conversation piece for anyone lucky enough to see it in person.

    Words fail. Simply stunning.

    Hope you post a pic of the first fly you tie with it.
