wow love that wood. great photo work on that. I would say "I'll take it", but funds are way to tied up atm for that. I'm sure this won't be here long.

Beautiful Mike, is this the kind of stuff we get when we don't hear from you for a while???
If so, carry on!
The blade is fabulous, and the handle is so gorgeous......it almost reminds me of honeycomb.
The talent level on this forum is unbelievable. I wish I had enough cash to own a piece by everyone, especially this one.
Congrats Mike, your baby is stunning

Mike that is a beautiful piece of work. Wish I had the funding right now, but I am trying to take a purchasing hiatus for the time being. Where's Oivind when you need him? Maybe Lucretia will see it and get the itch.

Inspiring work, for sure!

I saw it and thought it had Oivond written all over it, as well. Someone should show him :)

I immediately thought of Bulldogbacchus. But then again, its not like he needs anymore absurdly nice knives.

NO ChoP!

HAHAHAHAHA!! Thanks guys :) Really glad you like it. Had to resist the temptation to put it to hard use already today, as it is, i had to cut with it :D

You think rightly, my friend, had I not just commissioned Mike to do another knife for me.....
This one is stunning. I hope someone buys it soon.
I can stand anything but temptation.....
