"Starry Night" Enzo Trapper
« on: February 09, 2012, 09:51:54 PM »
Not exactly a self made knife, but I handled this blade and made the sheath as an X-mas gift for a good friend.

The handle slabs reminded me of Van Gogh's Starry Night painting.

Sorry for the crappy photos... they were taken indoors at night right before I shipped it.

Now I do, but it took a while.  I watched your grinding video and came back and now they're there....

I do think I'm understanding what 'knife envy'  is...    thats gorgeous!

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.
