Heres one thats been in the works for well over a year!

The PLAN..

Stainless damascus feather pattern Petty based off a design Salty brought to my hammer in a couple years ago.
Handle to have a combination of Malachite and burl woods.
Wa style handle.

The blade is ground and I gota say. Its gona be a laser! Wait till ya see the spine and choil shots on this blade.

Here are some images of the project so far.

Thanks to Devin Thomas for the nice piece of stainless feather to work with. :D Get better soon my friend!


Laying out the handle options and trying to decide how I am gona lay this one out. and what materials will work well together. Always a fun challenge finding 3 or more materials that play well together!! :)

My gut is telling me to go with the green as well. But maybe change up the thickness of the ebony spacers. and or using a different green burl block. to lighten the look of it some. Its a more feminine look that I am shooting for here.

Thanks for your input Mike. Great to see ya back on the board!

God Bless YA

I'd put some copper instead of buckle in there, just my humble opinion but I love the look of copper with green.

That is a nice profile. The handle is going to look great. You going octagon?

It is no doubt due to some sort of moral failing on your part.

DAMN! you're a bad, bad man Randy!
I also like copper, but nickle would look good too.
With all you got going on in the beautiful damy (one of the nicest feather patterns I've ever seen) and crazy grain in the wood, just don't add too much more material-wise. Too many patterns and be, well, too much.
