After a lengthy hiatus, it looks like Lee Williams is starting to get back into the shop again. Here is a piece that I just received from him that was in progress for almost 4 years, an Iceman framelock flipper with a 3 1/2" Mike Norris Gator Skin pattern stainless damascus blade and Tidepool pattern Timascus handle slabs and pocket clip.

Lee's time away from knifemaking does not seem to have taken away from his considerable skills at all, as this piece features the near perfect fit and finish that he has become known for. The flip action is excellent, and the knife can be flipped open in any orientation with no wrist needed whatsoever. The lock up is solid, and the blade centering is dead perfect.

Thanks Lee! Good to see you in the shop again!
