nice bit of a diversion. it looks like a well made working knife, and then as you study it the subtle touches become obvious. It has an understated elegance.

When I see your name I hurry to open your post. Nice LINE and execution. A lot of thought is revealed in your work.

Simple, elegant, powerful, your work captures all three consistently. I hope to meet you one day.

oooh i like that, especially the handle shape. i can just visualize the kind of control adding the extra meat at the front end of the handle would give for fine, tedious bladework. bravo! :D

I love the way your knives are composed of endings and new beginnings.

 

Very inspirational work. I especially appreciate how it expresses strong and clean form mated with such a fine sensibility for texture and materials.

thank you all for taking time to post!

 

@alan,

this is a facette of my style, years ago I made some bowies and campknives with that sort of guards and spacers.

but the micarta is a ´first´ for me-

my customer had to try it many times until I agreed to use this artificial material... ;)

but for a tool like this it´s a good choice.

 

best regards

Well done. Great use of materials, clean without being spare.

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.
