Here's a new one that was a custom order. He picked it up Saturday about 1:00. I was really sorry to see it go, as I only finished it Friday evening, so I didn't get a chance to drool over it any. Oh, well... He liked it so much, he order three more from me, and gave me full autonomy! Told me to surprise him! First time that's ever happened and I'm lovin it! Here's the specs on it guys, let me know what you think. Regards, Charles

The blade is 7 1/2", 432 layers of 1084 & 15n20 and in my modified ladder pattern.
Overall is: 13 1/4"
Bolsters are a four bar composite of 1084 & 15n20 with 84 layers on each side.
Handle is Old Elephant Ivory and Mosaic pins.

nice piece Charles! Those orders that you have control of are the best kind and the customer will always get your best work that way.

Real nice piece Charles. Very pretty. Damascus and ivory go so well together.

Oh, by the way, I received the stag and ivory today. Very nice stuff. Thanks!

Thanks for the compliments, guys! Yeah, I want to impress the guy even more with the three new ones. It really has me pumped. I'm glad you liked the stag, Terry. I only have 7 sets left for sale and I'm sure they'll be gone in a few days. Thanks again, for all the kind words. Regards, Charles
