    For a friend amongst us!

    So a long time ago in what seems like another lifetime, a person for the most part unknown to me reached out, and since that time we have become friends. You all know him as a generous person, who gives, even when things have been taken from him. We made a deal, well more a trade. In good faith he sent me a bunch of cool stuff, and in return wanted a knife that looked old, from another time...

    Not sure if it looks old, but I tried to dig up some old style ideas, and mix it with some new ideas

    Damascus blade, distal tapered

    Fittings are wrought iron, from a wagon wheel rim that hit these parts in the mid 1800's

    Spacers are blue and white turquoise, and the body of the handle is ivory. I intentionally left it looking a little rough, some tool marks show, I may yet etch the wrought to discolor it some. I will wait to get his opinion... Hope you like it brother!

    If I had to guess who that belonged to here (even without the story) I would have gotten it on the first try.

    Very cool.
