    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.

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