I´m impressed. Wonderful carving and engraving, nice proportions and a fantastic looking blade. You´re a very skillful man.

Well done !

Sweet package. I'm really drawn to the texturing contrasts on the leather.... very effective.

I have always thought that one man of tolerable abilities may work great changes, and accomplish great affairs among mankind, if he first forms a good plan....

Wow man! Each one's better than the last!


That is some damn impressive carving. Nice crisp ridge line on the blade, too.


Very cool.




"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Hope you don't mind but I shared it on my facebook page. Great piece! Is it an athame or is the name just for coolness sake?

Thanks Guys! Dave, the blade is slightly hollow ground, thus the sharp ridge.


Dan, I don't mind if you share at all, thank you! As to the name, this is a more ornate version of an earlier knife I had made. The first one was an athame, but this one, to my knowlege, is not.

Stunning! Perfect amount of details, complimenting each other without being to distracting.
