Very Beautiful blade. And a very functional design. I like it. The Wood/Leather Sheath mix is a Great Idea. I may have to try it myself.

Thanks for the Inspiration and for posting your Beautiful work.

Lovely blade, and very creative with the leather/wood scabbard. Nice work!

That is a very beautiful knife! The pattern weld is deceptive also, from a first glance it looked like very low layer kind of random pattern, but there is really a huge amount of character and grain within it, very very nice!

Thank you all for your kind words. My goal was to make a fairly simple blade at fast glance with details showing up upon closer inspection. The wood and leather scabbard is an idea I am trying to push farther in terms or construction and embellishment. It was the first time I ever tried something like that, so I figured I would keep it simple.

Man! That's some damn nice work. I really like the pattern textures on the blade, very organic. Plus the precise mosaic bolster really screams that you're in complete control of the piece.

 

Thanks for showing us!

Elias! I look forward to it as well. I am still a TA for JD's class for this upcoming year. You should stop by sometime.

 

Dave, thank you for pointing out what you did. I am constantly striving to find a way to present steel in a very organic fashion while still representing an ability to control the materials which I work with. I greatly appreciate hearing that people are picking up on it. I am still fairly new to this field. I have to been making blades for less then three years now and each time I pick up a project I really try to push myself and develop farther.
