It kinda looks magical, for some reason. Or is that just me?

Congratulations Mike!:spin chair:

Beautiful work, Mike.

09-20-2012, 10:57 PM
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

Gorgeous knife MD!

09-21-2012, 12:39 PM
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.

09-21-2012, 12:43 PM
Inspiring work, for sure!

09-21-2012, 01:11 PM
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!

I think I was starring at the musk ox too long...pulled me in like a crystal ball. I saw things....

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

09-21-2012, 02:10 PM

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.....

09-22-2012, 04:12 AM
A little sad I hadn't seen this earlier... I have been asking about this one for months but never actually decided to take it. Now I feel regret haha. Congrats to the buyer and mike for finishing and selling it.
