    BEAUTIFUL Nick. Similar in style to one you made a while back if I recall.

    It is CLEAN, and every detail just looks right!

    Just beautiful Nick. If a knife could be poetic, this one is to me.
    The damascus really has a topo map look to it, like islands in the sea.
    wonderful.

    hard to figure out what to say here, but that's a fantastic piece. The pattern going on in that steel is something else, and it looks like you brought it out in the nicest possible way. Handle design is phenomenal.
