Nice stuff Dan.  As usual, they get a "WOW".

They are outta the park, Dan. The beads add such a nice touch to them.

I'm going to be at the Blade Show the 7th, 8th, 9th of June. Anyone going to be there? Please try to find me if you do. I 'know there's tons of tables but keep looking. I'll be near the Alabama Damascus Tables

Here's a few I made to take

Those are, as usual, terrific looking knives and I like the scales.

Been a while since my last post. I had a heart attack the last week in September. Dr. thought I wasn't going to make it. But 4 stints about 1 inch long each and I'm back to normal. Tons of meds and diabetic now too. Oh well.....

Here's one that I just finished. 416 layer Damascus hunter style with brass, blue and turquoise spacers. The OAL is 9 7/8 with a 5 1/4 blade. Sheath will be leather of course

Wowza!

Take care of yourself.

Have you ever made an 'ugly' knife? :shrug:    If you have, I've never seen it. :cheers:

Glad to hear you're back in the shop and on the mend! :banana:

Here's a smaller folder I finished last night

mokume bolsters and Elk antler scales. Titanium frame and pivot screws. The blade steel is S35Vn stainless. It rides on ball bearings with hardened washers on the Ti side. It's 3 7/8 closed and 6 7/8 closed
