    It's with great sadness that I post that I lost my best friend tonight. Ron Frazier, my mentor and friend passed away at 9:00 p.m. If you knew him and even if you didn't, his influence in the handmade knife world was monumental. I miss him.
  8. Buster Warenski?

    Rumour had it that the "Gem of the Orient" was the first $1,000,000 modern handmade knife. I seem to recall that a Japanese tycoon commisned Buster to make another King Tut knife and Buster being the man of honor that he was refused but suggested an equally ornate gold and jewel encrusted knife.

    Stephen, You are absolutely correct! It an abstract rendition based on a squid. I actually called it my "Squid Knife" as a working title. Sometimes I affectionately called it "Squiddy". Anyway...you get the "A" for the day. Thank you.
