    Here's my latest knife. This one is the first one completed with my own engraving. The photos were done by Coop. Thanks Coop, great job.

    The blade is my own damascus, 5 inches long. The handle is laminated abalone shell with spacers of nickle silver and amber. Overall length is 9 3/4 inches.


    Thanks for looking, hope you like it.

    Really cool Mark. The engraving is simple but well done. I think engraving really adds to any area big enough to accept it.

    The deep relief engraving on the end piece is amazing....well, the whole knife is. But I especially like that deep relief style of engraving. It almost looks like a carving with the depth. Beautiful work!

    Thanks, I don't think you could get it from the owner. I think he started to cry a little when he saw it.

    Nice knife with lots to look at. I always wondered about doing engraving myself. Looks like you got it. Good job!
