Hanson abalone gent's w/filework

Recommended Posts

...and that describes it well. It's smaller and thinner than most of the work Don has done, and so the level of detail is that much MORE engaging. :eek:

Signature mosaic blade and bolsters. No stone left unturned. Just.... wow!

I've always liked abalone, and seriously appreciate good filework. Very nice piece. Not to mention the blending of the photo's.

The mosaic damascus is exellent and the abalone handle is stunning.

Thanks for the comments guys, they are much appreciated. Coop did a fantastic job with this image. This one is a little over the top for my tastes also but the customer wanted lots of filework, gold, mosaic damascus and abalone, so I fixed him right up. It's much smaller than it looks, blade is 3'', handle is 3 1/2'' long, it's 3/8'' wide from top to bottom at the front bolster and a little over 1/4'' thick. The pivot screw is a 1-72 and the others are 0-80 for size comparison.

 

Regards, Don H.
