    Gods country! As a matter of fact, my grandfather lived on Signal Mtn forever before he passed.

    Light work today for this one. Everyone who came over admired the blade, though. :)

    My first Backwoods knife: Elite Hunter model with 1095/15N20 Explosion pattern blade. Ebony Wood bolsters with box elder handles. Absolutely gorgeous! (sorry about the pics, this knife deserves better) ;)

    It's hard to find use for the word "favorite" when speaking of Bill's work, but I find the wood on this piece awe-inspiring! Like a flame preserved in wood and held your hand. Just plain breathtaking!

    ^^ I never thought I would own a Safe Queen or have an actual "collection" for collecting's sake. . . Until I started stalking BA's work.

    I've now bought two - the first of which may be arriving today. Needless to say, I'm very excited about seeing her. Obviously, pics will follow shortly.

    I don't know if I'll ever bring myself to touch my blades to anything but paper, as I fear I may shed more than just one tear if the aesthetics of these creations were ever marred by more than fingerprints and dust, but only time will tell. . .
