Python Canvas Micarta / copper pins

Black G10, Green/blk/green liner g10/ Jade g10 pins

 

So i had a major septic/main line clog/ bladeshow / wellpump died series of 3 weeks... After the  blade hurricane to clean up and all that finally got finished up today (FEMA shoulda have given me a disaster relief check)! So back to making knives! Woot! These are really lean, so they would flex and bend on impact, I guess counter to most peoples school of thought. But i love light and fast. To counteract the thinness of the blades the tip has a slight armor piercing aspect to it, in that i left the tip quite a bit thicker at the edge than the rest of the blade. 

My blade photography still needs help but... hopefully it gets the idea across

 

Whatcha think, not really my normal knife but it was a lot of fun. Ive forced myself to learn how to do swedges. Now they are kinda fun!

Very sleek lines - I agree that the python micarta really compliments the handle shape.  I like them both.

Thanks guys! I was wondering if anyone would like the python, the black one is my personal favorite of course :P 

Ive become a big fan of this style of handle sculpting.

Who wouldn't like It? Stunning work. Unfortunately every nickel I find at the moment (and hide from the missus) is going in the forge fund.  

    I seriously doubt you'll have any trouble selling such art.

@Gabriel James nice work you've been doing lately. If you want to go for light & fast, you might want to try tapering the tangs at the heel on the next couple of them.
