Fantastic. The copper detail is really complimentary to the shape.

Thomas, Really nice work. Your work here is very fine. Where did you find the blade? The art of making the blade alone is an art unto itself. It stands very proud beside that lovely plane. I make you the same offer as I did to Rick in the Netherlands. You like to come to Florida this winter, I have guest accomodations and a promise of a good time.

That no name blade is now a Napoleon knife with a beautiful handle, from the looks of that hollow grindon the edge this knife should be able to cut whatever needs to be cut. Thank you for sharing.

DaddyT that is so kind of you thanks a lot :) i will pm you this week ;)
Tsangell The copper have i never seen in a knife before so thats why i picked it. I think it gives such a warm color. Woodzy Rio palisander can be found (if your lucky) in easrBrasil,Honduras and Vestindien. Its hardwood and very rare. Girafbone is a piece of bone from a Giraf :DKen my dear friend. The blade is from a compagny called Helle as far as i remember. I would love to see Florida but i will pm you about that. So glad that you like the knife :)Woodworm Thanks ;)Bluepine Thats an honor you call it Napoleon….thank you very much :) Wayne ill promise you there will come plenty of knife from me :)

You know i thought that to myself after i posted the comment.The way you wrote ‘girafbone’ made it sound like an exotic wood I’ve yet to hear about.
Come to think of it, I guess it is about as exotic as a material can be.
