That's a very interesting and unusual design, Crash, and beautiful as well.  What is your inspiration?  How do you decide what kind of pattern/shape you will use?  Is there a particular purpose you envision for a knife like that?  I find it fascinating to delve into those kind of details. :)

I use a similar one for my leather work.  Seems to work much better than a razor knife and a lot more comfortable in the hand.  As far a inspiration....not sure.  I think the firs one I made of this style was because I messed up a knife I was making and ended up grinding away the mistake to something like this.

LOL.  This one was intended to turn out like this.  The first one of this style......not so much.
