I come here to learn and be inspired, it's easy to to fall into what the locals here expect to see. Buck, Gerber, Schrade, etc.

 

This is the reason I come to this site religiously. Thank you for sharing and inspiring.

Damn, now I gotta add you to the list of people who make Scottish dirks that I like (you, our own Scott Roush, and the Evans).

 

The adornment with silver and the citrine are just right for the ebony. Nice pattern welding, as usual.

 

Your experiences as a jeweler and silversmith shines on these.

 

great jobs!

I said then and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it; while there is a criminal element, I am of it; while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.” E. V. Debs
