black ladder

Damascus made from W2 and 15n20, handle of blackwood, brass, and red G10... the cutting edge is about 4 1/2" inches.

 

I had originally planned to have a blackwood bolster and olivewood for the rest, but I changed my mind, and kind of like the all black look... it gives it a sinister vibe I think.

Debating making a scabbard for this one, but will need to buy more blackwood...

 

Thanks for looking.

Man, I like it. I bet that blade has some cool chatoyant effects when moved around in the light. Super nice. The red spacer is a nice touch too.

Thanks Luke. This is the tightest ladder pattern I've ever done, and it does catch the light nicely... B)

Man that knife has a very elegant yet I mean business look to it. Looks pretty sweet to me and a blackwood scabbard would just set off the whole package.
