Man-o-man that is a gorgeous knife! Clean, clean, clean, clean, clean.......

Instantly recognizable as a "Weiland". Amazing!!

When I saw your work for the first time many years ago I was captivated, and I've continued to be a great admirer of your knives. Throughout that time, no matter what the design, your knives have always had a very unique and refined style. Your ability to create that instantly recognizable "look" with consistently impeccable workmanship is an admirable achievement.

Beautiful. I really like the thin bronze spacer between the bolster and handle. The raised clip point makes for a dramatic presentation.

 

Absolutely georgeous piece of wood. I thought it was either Ironwood or Cocobolo when I first saw it. I've not heard of "Swedish Whitebeam" before. Where do you buy it?

 

Thanks for sharing!

the ´swedish whitebeam´ is a scandinavian wood, and belongs to the family: ´moraceae´/ mulberry

Sleek and powerful. The Ironwood is beautiful, and the shape of the handle looks like it fits very comfortably in the hand. I've never heard of swedish whitebeam before, but it is an interesting wood. I might have to order some of it..

@bill,

 

ugly knives???

for sure- but I didn´t show them here...

 

and:

I see lots of people passing my table at shows:

a short look- and they are gone.

in their eyes my knives are uninteresting or ugly ones.

Style AND substance...ALWAYS A WINNER!

 

Exactly!

 

I bet those same people pick up those matte-finished micarta-handled ones that look machine-made. :rolleyes: They are not worthy of your talents, pay them no heed. B)
