2013 Art Knife Invitational

Here is one of the knives we took to AKI. This one was shown in the catalogue, opposite my image and descriptions:

Karen's Sub-hilt
A 7 1/2" Loveless-style, Sub-hilt Fighter, CPM-154 blade steel, T416 stainless lugged guard, sub-hilt and rear bolsters, mother of pearl handles, and 18K gold thong tube.
Featuring a unique "SR Johnson AKI 2013" logo on the spine, the high-polish, double-ground blade includes the "SR Johnson Manti Utah" logo on the obverse and reverse, this luxuriant piece is masterfully engraved by Barry Lee Hands in his "Renaissance Leaf Pattern" with black satin background. Details include inlays and overlays of assorted yellow, green and rose, 24K, 22K and 18K gold, encompassed by generous raised 24K gold borders.
The design showcases the "Gilded Pearl" technique - reverse-sculpted gold inlays in the mother of pearl - as only Mr. Hands can do, and is enhanced by more than fifty green and white diamonds and pink sapphires on the blade and handle fittings. Housed in a beautiful French-fit display case.

If you would like me to send you a 2013 AKI Show Catalogue, just send me $10 and your shipping address to cover shipping and handling. (Of course, shipping out of the U.S. will be more.)

In 300 years, art historians will be writing about the emergence of the fine knives at the turn of the 21st century. The piece you have created will be on the cover of their book. What a fantastic piece!

For those interested, here's another one from AKI 201; a "LOVELESS-STYLE" Big Bear with rear bolsters and nice Mammoth:
