I wanted to start this thread by saying thanks to Mr. Ken Hurst.
He is a true southern gentleman and interesting to talk to.
I posted this knife that I am working on a couple of weeks ago.
I sent the handle off to Mr. Hurst. A week or so later he sent this pic.
Looks great to me. What do you guys think?

I think it looks great, but then again I like anything and everything that he does. Can't wait to see the finished product. You have a great start.

That looks great....not just the blade....but Kens work ads that flair on everything he touches.
Very nice blade!

Hey Greg, that's a nice knife you made. Mr Hurst is doing a fine job on engraving, beautiful work indeed. One of these days maybe I'll go to Oklahoma to visit you, God BLess. Rey in Texas

Absolutely stunning work! Maybe someday I will be able to make a knife as nice so that it would warrant some of his amazing touch. Great job to both of you.

Thanks for all the replies,
My Internet service has been on and off all week.
here is the last pic. Mr.Hurst has sent.
We talked on the phone a few days ago and he is all done.
I am now waiting on the mail man.

Looks outstanding Greg . Keep the pictures coming as your progress.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all for their kind words. I did work hard at trying to design something special for Mr. Greg's client. If anyone is interested in discussing an engraving project for themselves, I'd be happy to talk to them about it. I'm almost always in the shop seven days a week, 10-12-14 hours a day & have a phone right beside me. Thanks again, Ken 910-221-5288

Greg how is this coming along? You have done such a good job on it we would like to see the finished knife.

I am waiting on the handle to come back from Mr. Hurst.
Considering the recent lose of his wife my stuff is probably the last thing on his mind (as it should be). I talked to him on Saturday and he said it would be shipped that day.
Thanks for your interest.

I Just got my handle back from Mr. Hurst.
I am stunned, this is absolutely beautiful.
These are pics of the knife loosely fitted together, I still have to blue the handle then grey the scroll work.
Once again, Thanks Mr. Hurst. I have enjoyed working with you and look forward to our next project.
11-12-2009, 05:35 PM
Yeah that is really turning out nice. Beautiful crackle mamoth ivory. Can't wait for the next round.
11-21-2009, 06:45 PM
That is absolutely gorgeous!
12-02-2009, 03:15 PM
I had to dig this one up from the depths.
Well it's finished and off to Mr. Coop for photos.
Tell me what you think, good or bad I can take it.
12-02-2009, 03:30 PM
Wow a great looking knife, balanced well executed VERY NICE!!!!!

I think you hit a home run
12-02-2009, 08:32 PM
Hey Santa, I know what I want for Christmas!!!
Great work by both you and Ken. That is an absolutley stunning piece.

...I have to agree, especially that guard and handle have a really eye catching flow.
12-05-2009, 07:59 AM
That's a beautiful knife Greg, one that anyone would be extremely proud to own.
Your pics are good, but be sure to show us what Jim comes up with as well...
12-05-2009, 07:17 PM
Thanks again guys.
Eli, I just got an e-mail from Mr. Cooper letting me know it has arrived safe and sound.
To be honest it's more than a little unsettling to know my work is being inspected by a man who has handled some of the most beautiful knives ever made.
I trust he will do a splendid job, as all of his work top notch.
