Ok, so another break at home, and another knife wrapped up.

This is the tightest, most even ladder pattern I have done to date! Very happy with it.

So 1084+ and 15N20 @ HRC 60 Tight ladder damascus

Mokume bolsters, white fiber lined scales. Scales are redwood burl provided by the client. Copper pins to accent the copper in the mokume, mosaic center pin.

Client requested large radius choil.

Spine and choil rounded.

Sorry for the crappy pics, took them on a job folder in the snow! lol!! Ignore the finger prints on the blade, it look good till I down uploaded the pics! most of the dark areas are reflections, not smudges or prints, the blade is very reflective.

Thanks for looking! (Good to be home again!)
