Can you guess who provided the wood?

I got to say that the Burl on the Victorinox is out of this world!
Pics dont justify the burl nor the work by Harald! might look a little bulky on the pics, but for those with larger hands its just awesome to hold :)
God I love his work :)

Very slick!!! :doublethumbsup: Are the bolsters on the damascus knife blued or is that just an optical delusion?:D

I hope Darkhoek joins the thread, but here is info from his blog:

The handle on the Victorinox is from a two tone brown dyed maple burl from Burl Source also. Mark, you just blow me away with all that spectacular wood. Three 1,5mm pins from nickel silver and a file worked spine on the tang. Handle is glued up with black epoxy to better show off the file work.

Here is another pic of it:

The petty got a handle from stabilized Redwood burl from Burl Source. Thanks again Mark for excellent stuff. The saya is also from redwood burl but unstabilized. The handle spacer and end cap as well as the saya pin is from Musk ox forhead. Hey, it's Christmas! :o)

Also I would like to show the other Vic I got:

So now I got 2 breadknives. Gonna ask Harald to rehandle 2 other knives for me, so I hope to have pics of them next summer.
