Wow, just....wow. Bloody notch, more like bloody nice! That is a stunner! I love the polishing job, did you use traditional Japanese methods? It certainly doesn't look etched. I also love the way you put your mark on various parts of the knife and sheath. Very stylized, but still recognizable.

 

cheers,

Absolutely amazing :lol: I really love the way the hamon jumps out and smacks you, this whole bowie just demands attention. Truly masterful piece of art here!!! Many thumbs up.

an artist is not ahead of his time, he is his time. its just that the others are behind the times

Everything that every body else has said! That blade is incredible and I really like the touch of rouch finish on and around the ricasso. It really makes a statement. As far as cutting yourself, I figure that I'm going to cut and/or burn myself with just about every blade I make. I look on it as sort of a baptism. (But it don't make it feel any better <_< )

thank you again for your responce!

 

@ steve,

I don`t use japanese stones-

after grinding the blade to 1000 I polish with several chrome- and metallpolishes to nearly mirror-finish.

then 5x short etching in citrus-acid at 70°C, finally light polish again- ready.

the whole thing without rotating machines- only by hand....but with lots of time- :-(
