“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”

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

I got a surprise in the mail today. Completely unexpected and I had zero, I mean ZERO, idea what it could be until I saw who it was from. I was flabbergasted at the thought. Adam was supposed to keep this one for himself.

 

Anyway, wrapped up in several layers of foam packing and some brown paper was this nice wooden box.

(Better pics later I was in an excited frenzy trying to grab some natural light and I messed up some of the pics)

The underside of the box has this awesome carving.

Inside the box was this knife and a carved antler piece.

I am beyond words. I made some fairly simple blades and Adam made works of fantastic and amazing art. I am humbled beyond my ability to express it.

I was hoping I’d catch you by surprise :ph34r: Sounded like a good way to make the day a little better. 

Thanks for the compliments, I’m glad it is to your liking. I’ll post some pictures as well. I didn’t do very well with the WIP part, the leather part of the sheath took some persistence, the end result was the 4th? try and I finally liked it :P still a little stiff but I think it will break in over time.

Here are some additional pictures. Just shot with a phone camera on a spring break trip to the river.

I went back and looked for more in process pictures and didn’t find much. I really struggled with the leather, with the taper of the handle it didn’t want to let go of the knife after it was stitched. I ended up with a relief cut in the back (which I can’t find a picture of)

Anyway, in the end I finally finished it after 3 crazy years.
