(Please let me know if this post isn't appropriate) Hello everyone! I know its been a while, I had to put the tools away for now. I'm glad to see some familiar faces from years back. I recently came across some old papers and I found one of my favorite designs that I drew as a wild 16 year old. I read a lot of fantasy books and watched a lot of youtube as a kid and I wanted to make some stuff. I did forge some knives here and there and I made some blades I'm proud of. I never mastered the craft and now I've gone to trade school and learned how to machine. Meanwhile I'm working over the summer travelling all over the country. I think I've slept in hotels more than my own bed this year! The knife I designed is in no way meant to be practical, its purely decorative and I don't want it even fully sharpened (Though I do want it heat treated so I could sharpen it) . I'm going to be moving to another country this November and I wanted to bring a nice gift with me. I thought it would be a great gift I want to make sure I am paying decently well for a well made knife, and I've done the effort of running a business. I know it won't be cheap. The materials are my preference but are not set in stone, For example it could be bone or antler or another exotic wood instead of Ivory. Wrought iron instead of brass, something instead of bloodwood etc. The design is also flexible somewhat if you guys don't think the doubled over guard is feasible.
