Very cool. I love the natural symmetry of the sheep bone handle. Nice integration into your overall design!

That came out very nice.

 

The inlay is beautiful.

The dichotomy between the raw bone and the rest of the package is really eye-catching. I would never have thought of that combination, but it works.

Man that is primal, savage, and refined at the same time... beautiful.

I've tried copper wire inlays before but never got it to look good. Between that and the rest of the blade you've done some fine work. Maybe I'll make somethin that looks that good in a couple years. :)

You've done it again, Jake, that's a great looking knife.

Dog bone dagger :0)

 

I really like it, kidding aside, especially the bolster with the copper. Very cool.

Jake,

 

How did I miss this one? Anyway, great work, as usual. Had I made something like this, such a long, pointy, profile and put a sheep bone handle on it... I would be tempted to name it Sheep Shank!
