Wow!

 

Not your usual style, but obviously yours. I love that wrought spacer. B)

...and I've been working like a dog.

 

Damn I love your work. I was starting to suffer from Weiland withdrawls. Thanks for posting.

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

gerhard
