Beautiful. I love the bronze element.

"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

It looks almost organic - everything flows together beautifully and looks like it grew together, - love it!

thank you all for taking time to post!

I`m glad you like my knife.

 

 

the bronze-part isn´t cast- it is ´carved´ out of a massive piece of bronze, the surface is done with a dremel.

Great job Mr.Wieland--Lots of tedious time spent here. Great finish to the job.

 

P.S. I have not been to the forum for quite a while. Now it is going to take a bit of time to catch up.

Thanks for showing the good work in all the pieces.
