    del ealy, western handled knives?

    Dave has alluded to Del being amenable to making western style handled knives. Del later posted that hes got a western WIP. I really like Del's split wa lazer styling, but maybe a couple of pictures of the western? Pretty please Del?!

    Since sliced bread!

    I bet those would be nice...!!! By the way... he should patent those split wa handles... as far as I am concerned... they are the greatest thing since sliced bread! It makes a huge improvement on the feel of the knife (Balance Rocks!!)

    I am amenable to western handles and I will do them for custom orders, on occasion.
    I really wanted to take the best of what I saw in the japanese style and add my own style.
    I think I have suceeded, there has only been positive reponse to my style and I am going to keep doing my thing.
    As far as the patent thing goes I appreciate the compliment, this is my style and I think everyone will recognize that now, If anyone wants to copy my style let them try, its harder to get perfect than it looks. (I love this smiley)

    So sleepy asked me for a western handled knife and wanted it out of stainless damascus as well. Here is the first shot of the blade, a few holes and its time to heat treat.

    Del,
    How does that compare to your fusion knife? Is that a slicer? Looks like the blade hight is a little shorter.

    BTW, you are awesome!
