    Here's one I finished a while back for a really good guy/collector. I couldn't do this one any photo justice so I had to send it for pro photos.

    Hand-forged from 1075 steel, clay quenched and etched
    9 1/4" overall, 4 3/8" blade, .195 thick at the ricasso
    Full distal taper
    'Twisted Steel' fileworked spine
    Rounded ricasso edge
    Fluted damascus fittings
    Heat colored and coined titanium spacer
    Stabilized premium Curly Koa handle
    Damascus bolt cover

    Thank you for the great photo work Coop! Your work never disappoints.

    All comments and discussion welcome.

    And some details:

    I love Koa! It always turns out nicely. However, it is very hard to take pictures that do it justice. My guess is this knife looks even better in person...even with professional pictures. I want to hold it!

    So stunning. The Hamon looks 3D, did a double take because it has such depth. Nice koa as well. Very inspiring for this rookie knife maker although I don't have enough years in my life to reach this skill level.
