After almost a year of messing with this thing, i am finally done!!! 3.26mm at spine with a full distal taper, It is a 278.4 mmm on edge damascus suji with musk ox handle, african blackwood ferrule and butt cap, copper and polished damascus spacers. Handle length is 149mm dimensions are 20x25.7mm at the heel and 18.7x 20.8 at the ferrule. Will have saya( still need to make) and a intricately tooled leather sheath( will get pics up later tonight) The damascus is around 380 layers, and it was the one i helped forge at Randy's hammer in last year!!! Price is $1350 shipped insured and delivery confirmation!!!
Thanks for looking!!!






As always, first I'll take it, gets it!!!

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.

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

That is superb in so many ways! I loved the design of the handle ever since you started the thread!

Congratulations Mike!:spin chair:

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.

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