Wes Detrick Posted January 5, 2016 Share Posted January 5, 2016 The trend of not know what to categorize my knives as continues. Oh well. Lately, I have been thinking about textures in the materials I use. The more along this path I go, the more I like things that have some measure of disorder to them. I guess that is why I like things like hammered copper, forge finishes and rust bluing so much. They have character to them, and they contrast so nicely with other elements. In the case of this knife, I dig the way that the forge finish contrasts with the super smooth bone. It's cool looking and feels awesome in the hand. Oh, I really love how the hamon came out on this. It looks like smoke. Anyhow, here you go. Let me know what you think good or bad; I value your opinions.
