That gorgeous ivory was definitely put to very good use. Terrific bowie!
WOW!! That is incredible John, and i'm sure it is even more exquisite when holding it!
The way the damascus is matched to the crackle pattern in the ivory looks superb.
What a piece of ivory! What a knife!
Congrats to the owner, and thank you John for letting us have a look
That is Really cool John I knew you and Shawn got together and I see the time was well spent. Rosebud I like it

John you sure are riding a monstrous wave! I can't say near enough of the amazing work you've been putting out..
Shows off a bunch more than the ivory!! Great looking piece, John! Really special.

Looks great John.
That's a beautiful knife and the Ivory is really nice.

It arrived here today for it's leather.......stay tuned!
I've added the photos of Paul Long's fantastic sheath for this one.
The overlay is a Golden Lizard to accent the Mammoth Crackle, and the tooling carries out the "Rosebud" theme of the blade's Damascus.
Paul's original "papoose" holds the Damascus tipped "Take-down" tool.
Paul done it proud!
The customer has good taste!
Such a Great knife. I wish I could afford to be a collector of this level of knife.
