Bartlett, good one about the butterfly. lol
Thanks to all, I really appreciate the good words and as much as I miss making knives, I am really enjoying these sculptures.
I got it forged in 3 hours with just a hammer. It would have been faster with a hotter forge even. The only downtime I had was waiting for it to heat up.
Man this ironwood is addicting stuff! AEB-L with ironwood, white liners & hollow pins. Slowly getting better on grinding & finishing, but having fun with it now (not as much an exercise in masochism as before)! This one is very thin, so it's not really a robust knife, better as a fine slicer, cuts really well at 19 DPS. FFG is done with a 600 grit finish on the blade this time.
That's some sexy stuff there!

Ben that's awesome looking burl! I might have to go shopping again. You have any matched scales for that one?
Here is some of your manzanita burl again. Just finished this prototype western Gyuto.
Finally got around to finishing this 3 finger necker.
Had the garage/shop rewired, and my breaker box upgraded to 200 amps. No more tripping switches. Also getting my motorcycle ready to sell so I can use the money to buy a real grinder.
Working on my first kydex sheath for it atm. Just waiting for the die set from knifekits for my new arbor. Also built a kydex press.
I narrowed my choice down to a Pheer grinder. And went with a Palmgren 1/2 ton arbor press.
