Not sure who Coop is but I have seen his photos before and the man is definitely a photographer. But what you gave him to photograph was an absolutely flawless piece!! You did not miss a detail about that one! The knife flows from one end to the other! Your eye just seems to be drawn from one end to the other!! I always say a knife needs a sheath and that one compliments the knife well!! Definitely two thumbs up!!
The damascus pattern getting tight right at the bolster on the spine looks amazing...fans out beautifully. All the details of this knife are perfect.
