Didn't get time to get this up on the forum before the Badger show, its patterned after the Russian Long Horned Beetle.

The blade and head are mosaic damascus, eyes are tangerine garnet set in 14k gold, top body is fossil walrus ivory, bottum body is mammoth ivory, liners are titanium, spacer is damascus, 14 saphires are placed inside and out in 14k gold and the stand is also 14k gold. The blade rides on 64 1mm ball bearing around the pivot joint and its smooth as silk and locks up like a vault. I think it turned out pretty cool, let me know what you think.

It's not that I would trade my lot

Or any other man's,

Nor that I will be ashamed

Of my work torn hands-

 

For I have chosen the path I tread

Knowing it would be steep,

And I will take the joys thereof

And the consequences reap.
