My latest and my first one with engraving by me.

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!

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