Hey everybody,
I have this knife up for sale. I held on to this one for a while, but school bills are due, and i have to let go of it.

convex ground 1095 blade with delicate "fire" hamon
Copper habaki, Linen Micarta gaurd, mosaic pin
Carved curly cherry handle and sheath.

The bladeis a dream to cut with, and cuts very powerfully. It has some fine scuff-marks from the sheath that i can polish out if you want. it has a very sharp robust edge, and will be work just fine as a work knife as it would a display item.

SOLD! Please contact me here on the forum or via email at Knifemaker87@gmail.com

Chris - That sure is an attention getter and the sheath is wild. I have never seen anything quite like that.

it was both a pain and a pleasure. i loved the carving, but keeping everything straight and clean was a pain. i think it was worth it though.
thanks for the interest!

That is very nice. I am curious about the carving tools you used and how you got that dimpled effect in the valley where the tang pin goes.

I have kept an eye on your work over the last couple of years and the ascending curve has been amazingly steep.
Stunning work Chris, great creativity. The woodwork is amazing. I particularly like the texture of the wood in the two last photos.
Congrats.
