A couple for the Blade Show

Getting things lined out for this year's Blade Show.

First, a multi-bar Damascus Hunter, with nickel silver guard/spacers, and some of the best presentation grade Cocobolo that I've ever seen....

Also finished up this Bowie....

Feather Pattern Damascus blade, nickel silver guard/spacers, and a carved/textured stabilized Koa handle.....

Just about have all my Blade Show knives the most dreaded I call it.... working in "dead cows" (leather work).

Yep, those are two real nice looking blades. Hard to choose between the two but the one with the multi bar damascus and the Cocobolo handle really catches the eye.


If you're not making mistakes then you're not trying hard enough

Lookin' good Ed!

I always enjoy your subtle handle sculpting.

Can't believe you don't enjoy leather work--I love it!
To each their own...

Both are impressive but the multi-bar Damascus Hunter is clean looking due to the horizontal drawn blade. Dan
