Miguel,

Nice work! I think the white background in a couple of the photos does not show off your carving as well as a darker background would......

The first time I looked I missed alot of the carving..... I went back and looked closer and then saw the rest of the carving......

Dave: Very good comment.

I think that a knife should always be a knife.

I tried this knife at the branches forming a frame.

Of course it is weaker than if be solid. Whenever possible I tried to have a structure. May not be used as a bowie but cut.

This clay hardened in the branches and tempering 3 times. Like is hard.

 

Chris: these are the tungsten carbide cutters. 1 is a modification I made to the details. After sanding with the Dremel and hand.

 

Jesus: I made several sketches. After two drawings, one on each side.

Defining what is a right and left (front and back). This is a guide, the rest is imagination.

 

Pat B: is difficult but possible.

 

Shortdog.I will Think.

 

Richard: I agree, are not good pictures.

 

Thanks again.

Miguel

Thats fantastic, and beautiful. I don't know how you did that, but the months and many broken bits must be a clue. I can imagine that done in wax and cast, but to put it straight ino steel is something else all together.

This is one of those pieces that I just know I won't forget.

Hmm, I saw this knife when you posted it and I thought I added a reply. I guess I was just so amazed and dazed that I forgot to. Words cannot express the awesomeness of that piece.

That knife is like David or the Sistine Chapel.

Miguel, please don't top that one. I can hardly look at my plain old knives knowing that thing exists.
