Gerhard, everything you do seems pitch-perfect. :blink:

If you could bottle it you could become rich!

I always look forward to your posts, Your work is recognizable yours yet each piece is remarkable unique. Your work inspires me. Do you ever come to the USA and demo , for whats that worth do you demo ever in Europe.

First I have to say I never liked S-guard.

But you managed to make it in the way I have to change my mind. Now I see - it's not S-guard I don't like, it's the way most S-guards are designed.

Beautiful design! Thanks for sharing.

 

BTW, I liked your "ship-knife" too, just didn't find right words to comment :D

Wow. That's really nice. I'd love to learn how you achieved the texture on the bronze elements (sub-guard and the buttcap).

 

Your work is always inspiring!

From where I'm sitting, looking at this beautiful knife, *these* are the good old times. Fantastic details shots, super clean work. I would love to see a work in progress on this one. Perfection.

Morning Gerhard,

 

I've been looking at this blade for severals days now, ever since you first posted it. It's hard for me to imagine but you seem to be getting better, if that's possible. The design elements in Ol' Hook are wonderful. I too have not appreciated the "S" guard until now. The combination of metals, wood, and leather and how they all flow together is exquisite.

thank you all for taking time to post!

I`m glad you like my ´old style´knife.

 

jim,

good idea with the ´bottle-ing´-

I`ll try, but I foresee my failure... :(

 

timothy,

I will not come to the states in the next years-

and I make no demos (....cause I cannot work in front of spectators :wacko: )

 

this was a little tutorial about tight fit my way:
