I am about to finish up a master's degree in physiology, after which I will be moving to start dental school. Because of this I won't have space for a workshop and likely won't have the time for knife making, so I decided to work hard to finish these up before the move. A kitchen set for my parents. All triple-quenched high-carbon damascus, mokume bolsters, and snakewood handles. Hope you enjoy.
Knife I made for my dad because he was in need of a good cooking knife. Not much else to say about it. Hard to see but this is my family crest. The motto at the bottom reads "finis coronat opus" which means "the end crowns the work". I know the carving isn't particularly good but it was done with a pocket knife and I have no idea how to actually engrave metal. I also posted pictures of this knife in its new sheath here. http://www.bladesmithsforum.com/index.php?showtopic=27238
