Thank you all so much.

Huw, those are the scales we talked about a while ago. Thanks for bringing then back to my attention.

I should have snapped them up!!! Haha

That is seriously one of my favourite looking knives I've seen from you.

thanks guys the next one is going to be a keyhole with blackwood handle. but not until the new shop is up and running. hopefully in time to get it done for the Seattle international knife show. if so it will be for sale on my table.

I sat in a demonstration with Jerry Rados last summer on how to make the Turkish twist. I love how the end result is achieved, never would have thought how it was done. Excellent work as usual Bill.

really nice. i like the way the damascus pattern blurs near the front edge. Somehow, a purely symettrical pattern is a bit boring and makes it look like the blade was stamped out in a production run. Have always liked Bill's work and the high point of my life would be to visit his shop one day

You can see my work at www.billburkeknives.com prices are set according to complexity of pattern on a per blade inch system.

thanks
