Wow...How cool is that?!?!

Mighty cool filework coming from an "old timer" like that.

Much thanks for the treat....


I'm more than a little taken with the thought that someday, perhaps hundreds of years from now, someone's going to find one of my knives and think to himself, "Mighty cool filework coming from an "old timer" like that."


Dennis Greenbaum

Yeah Baby!

That is pretty cool !!!!

It is amazing when you think about it, that embellishment of tools
and weapons is one of the oldest forms of art in history.

Looks like there is some engraving on the sides as well.
Have anymore pictures?

Darren
