Very nice looking—really attractive wood handle, and you just gotta love that blade.

It’s rugged and beautiful all at the same time. I love that dimpled, forge finish along the blade’s spine.

Thomas,
This is a very wonderful knife. I simply love things that we can use but are also well made and beautiful. I can appreciate the work that went into this. I have to wonder how you could let it go. I have sold a fair amount of my work but there is usually a little angst for me when I do. I become very attached to what I make because only I know every square mm of the work. My hands have touched every one. So I have to ask what was it worth to you to let it go?

WOW! That is really nice. I like it better than the last one you did, and I really loved that one. I also have a knife in the works, hope to have it done before Christmas. I really like the patterns in the wood you used. Be well my friend!
