    Coop,

    Does that gallery exist on your site somewhere as a gallery - something with a unique URL we could pass on?

    Hi Learning: Thank you. We are glad you enjoy these as well. Hooked! (Yes, I work by commission: I get paid for this work.)

    Joss: My Gallery specifically?

    http://www.sharpbycoop.com/jalbum/index.html

    Or do you mean the Gallery software? If so, go to JAlbum.net to see the variabilities for many styles, and my specific 'skin' is a paid-for skin called Fotoplayer (www.fotoplayer.com). Jalbum has many free skins. I found this one worth the $40.

    Latest publications

    I was happily impressed to see my client's work displayed so freely. Blade Magazine/May: From the Table of Contents onward there were twelve images shown:

    My ad for Tim Britton's slipjoints
    Bill Johnson / Sandra Brady
    Mike Zscherny
    Harvey Dean
    Steve Hill
    Joe Mandt
    Mick Strider (Dave Abramson's knife)
    Walter Brend
    Mace Vitale
    Dale Baxter
    Final page: Stephen Olszewski


    The latest Knives Illustrated also had five of my images, as did Knife World. I'm told Tactical Knives had some also.

    It was an especially good month!

    Just finished: Jeremy Marsh folders

    I met Jeremy for the first time in Chicago last year. He gave me this delightful folder to shoot:



    Well, he's pretty diverse. Here he goes making clean again. Check out that 'thumbstud':





    I loved the styles and fitment and action. Another maker to watch.

    I'm not that much into tactical/folders but the second and third knife are wonderfully clean and I love the flow of both of them.

    Buster Warenski delights

    These were posted appropriately in their own thread. But, they are too glamourous to exclude here. I loved them all.

    Russian knives

    Likewise for these fixed blades. There are some VERY fine artistry and skills involved in the making.

    WOW...love those Oleg Alexander knives. What comes to mind is a modern version of Jim Pugh's style.

    Great looking work.

    Thanks, Magnus! I am glad you posted a hello. For NO good reason (other than forgetfulness) I omitted your own great work. I will include it below.

    Magnus, the sword is a really special creation, in my mind's eye. And I have always loved the way you mate the sheath with the blade, this being no exception.
