Jellyroll Bowie

Recommended Posts

Here is a recent knife I finished (about a month and a half ago) that I had photographed by Caleb Royer and to say the least I am always pleased with his work and how he can capture all of the subtle details in the woods and damascus patterns. I have really been enjoying playing with the twisted jellyroll damascus and believe it to be a highly untapped source of pattern development. That being said this knife is a multibar of alternating standard 30 layer twist with a twisted jelly roll. All comments are welcome and thanks for looking.

Thanks for the comments everyone. :) Austin here is a closer view of the pattern. It was six bars three standard twist of 30 layers and the other three bars were twisted jelly roll bars so much tighter.
