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.
