I like it! The shiny and dull contrast on the blade is interesting.

That is a beautiful knife Ruggero! Love your material choices; the brass is excellent with that red wood.

That looks great :) Your leather work is very pleasing.

 

If you don't mind me asking, what do you use to texture the leather around the carving?

OK. I really, really like that knife. Especially the fittings and the dragon on the butt cap. The sheath is coming out great too.

Excellent work Ruggero! Whenever someone does a work in progress thread like this, I always get inspired.

I have been trying to design a very similar engraving on some bronze spacers for a knife I'm making and have been having difficulty with the spacing.

This one just showed me what to do.

Thanks.
