I found the horse head on the blade. I win....

Really nice work of art! Exceptional....

That was what caught my eye as well when I started to look past the overall excellence of the knife.

 I think this is awesome! Absolutely stunning! Showed it to my dad, who is a retired journeyman farrier, and he thought it was epic too, especially that flawless finish on the brass!

Really good work from concept to finish. Well done George

Wow, very nice.  I'd love to see the sheath that goes with it.  

I may have to copy the anvil guard....

RIP Bear....be free!

I'll tell you what I think makes this one special:  I first noticed the horse head etched in, and thought "That is slick."  Then I started reading comments about the anvil guard, and hammer pommel, and thought "Wait, I didn't notice those!"  I had to go back and take a second look.  To me, that means your thematic elements are nicely balanced :)
