  1. Hi All, My apologies for disappearing for the last couple of years. As is my custom, I got pretty consumed by a couple of other hobbies and haven't made a knife in quite a while. I've been itching to get back into it, but I've also been wholly consumed by my real job for several months and haven't had the energy to go out to the shop. I managed to break that cycle a few evenings over the last couple of weeks and turned this little guy out. The blade is made from a "Micro-mosaic" bar I welded up from 1084 and 15N20 specifically to have a pattern fine enough to work on a folder blade. I did a WIP on that bar on here back in the day if you want to go searching for it. Maybe I should have gone a bit tighter with the pattern as you can't quite see how it repeats. Liners are bronze, with nickel silver bolsters. Scales are jigged bone. The blade rides on a bronze blade bushing adjusted to be 0.0006" (yes, 6 tenths) thicker than the balde to provide snappy action with no blade shake. The back spring is 1075 and heat blued to contrast against the bronze. I'm a bit rusty at this after a couple of years. Made a few goofs, and had to refer to a tutorial I posted on here about how to make slipjoints. I'm pretty happy with it though as all I wanted was a new knife to carry around. Here it is next to my current daily carry knife. It has been in my pocket with my keys and change every day for about 5 years. Still works great although I am starting to see some cracks in the bone scales. It was one of my early slipjoints, and I have since learned to make them a bit slimmer and more compact. The blade on the new one is only about 1/8" shorter, but the overall knife is much slimmer in the pocket. Thanks for indulging me. I'll try to be more active on here from now on.
  2. Latest build Takedown dagger, mosaic damascus
  3. A recent commission, the blade is a tiled end grain w's pattern with a 340 layer twist edge, the guard and spaced are also 340 layer Damascus and the pommel is a single tile of the mosaic pattern. there are 7 carnelians set in the hilt and scabbard the handle is cord and leather wrapped and the scabbard felt lined popular with a leather wrap and steel fittings it is set for a left hand carry, as this was ordered as a companion to the falchion I made a few years ago. Like the falchion this is a full take down, and includes a damascus wrench with a damascus skull bead to take it apart. enjoy!
  4. These were both for my table at NYCKS, the blades are two differnet patternes of mosaic damascus, we got a new shop mate here at Dragons breath forge, Mereko Maumasi he is a bit of a wizard with mosaic and some of his ideas have infected me. The spidy pattern came about after showing him the parent bar and he had an idea and drew out the pattern..looked so cool I went with it. the shooting star pattern was one i came up with, putting together some things I have been playing with along with some of Marekos methods. Totally looking forward to exploring these ideas further. the spidy pattern is maple with bronze and G10 spacers the shooting star is Koa with nickle silver and G10.
