So, I finished up that Turkish Twist knife commission. I also made a little video of the finished knife and sheath where I explain the symbolic elements in the designs.

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

Wonderful knife Josh and the symbolism just makes it all the more special.

Finally got time to sit and digest this video and it deserved the concentration to take in all the points of symbolism that add imeasurably to the knife that is outstanding in its own right.
