omfg. that is the greatest thing i've ever seen you come out with. i usually dislike mosaic damascus for blades, but the monosteel edge really sets that off a treat and the pattern is gorgeous, almost like subtle engraving, and the lines and fit and finish look perfect. is the 'D' guard a seperate piece from the front guard? if so how are they joined? Beautiful work...

I cant stop looking at it. Is the blade blued? everytime I look I find something new. When it first came up I was just locked on the blade. scrolled down and someone mentioned the D-gaurd and I had totally missed it and that was the reason I desided to look at it in the first place. WOW!

OMG!!! It almost looks like the freakin guard runs into a slot in the upper bolster and is slotted for the tang to go through both or something??? Good gracious Peter, you're killing us!!!

Thanks Jake, the "D" guard is blind pinned into the front guard, when its all glued and screwed its very strong.

The solid blue portion of the blade is 360 layer tool steel twist damascus, with no nickel, it looks like mono steel in the photo.
