Very slick.  It's all very crisp.

 

If I may, what is a desk knife?

I like the design a lot and the carving etc add to it a great deal but the underlying design is really very nice.

I think it's a term I picked up years ago from one of the old 'Knives 19xx' annuals - it just denotes a fairly decorative display knife that doesn't really fit any practical or historical typology...

Beautiful knife and I love the carving on the handle.  Kestrels are one of my favorite birds of prey and I think that that knife picks up the spirit of them.
