That wrought iron is wonderful and so is the ironwood. Very nice all round and great photography too.

Just looking at those pics make me want to hold it and feel the contours in hand. Really like the treatment you have done for the blade with that finger ring really making it special.

That's slick.  It has a real steam punk or post apocalyptic sort of vibe to it without looking so over the top that it doesn't belong in the kitchen.  I like it.

It makes me want to spatchcock some chickens...

Thank you all, this one held a lot of unbroken ground for me, including my first time "dry welding" the San-Mai.   And overall I'm extremely pleased with the resulting knife.  

 

 

As to the comments on the photography.  I wish I could take the credit.  As I felt this is the best knife I've done this far, I wanted to really show it well.  So I asked a friend who's into photography to come over with his lighting, and photo box, to help me get some good shots.  He taught me a lot, and now I have a shopping list, so hopefully I can get some good shots of my next project.  

 

 

Stephen.
