I've made my wife so many knives over the years that she would scream if I made her one more. She makes me box some up twice a year and give them out to the locals, most have no idea what they have.

So for Christmas I made her a key rack, she has trouble finding her keys. The hooks are made from pure iron, forged not cast, and the shield is made from carbon and nickel rain drop damascus. The damascus is heat blued.

Sorry for the poor photos.

Thanks for looking

Very nice! Oh, and I am frantically searching for some property near you so I can become a 'local' :D

My first thought too :D

Nice work Devin, you'll have to make up some Damascus key blanks so you can get some Damascus keys cut to match....

Devin, you need mokume screws for that rack. :)
Love it.

Everything you make is so cool looking Devin. Love it!

Wonder what that baby would bring on the open market...

I was going for the hill-billy look.

Thanks everyone.

you can always turn mokume rod, cut off two caps, mill a recess and cover the screws. It won't take you no time to get it done. :)
