I always know it's gonna be good when I see you've posted.  This is no exception.  Brought an involuntary "OOOOOoooooooohhhhh......." when I saw the pics. B)

Wowzers :o

 

I love the steel.  I didn't know "Eye crushed Ws" were a thing until now.  I'll have to look that one up.

It's a small thing, but I really like how the speckled sheath finish goes with the knife.

Excellent.

 

I love the way you get your plunge lines so well defined at the edge and then blend them so gracefully as they fade out.

 

And that walrus is very nice.

Beautiful. The curve of the forward bolster is really nice. Non makers might not appreciate the difference between a flat bolster and a curved one w/ multiple spacers, but every bladesmith looks at that and goes  . . . wow, that a lot of fiddly work to ensure no gaps. 

 

Impressive.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Yes. +1 To all of the above comments. That is a beautiful piece.

“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.
