    After making slipjoints most of the summer,
    it's good to get back to something with No Moving Parts! :)

    This one has a 8.25" W2 blade, damascus fittings and fossil walrus handle. 13.5" OAL.

    Thanks folks!


    Jim, this piece of ivory has blue inside and it's peeking out in a few places. :)

    Typical DH III goodness. That thing is simply "Beautimus", and I don't call things Beautimus unless they truly are.

    Looks like that hamon has some color trying to pop through, too! Nice one, Don. :thumbup: Are you sure it doesn't fold?? :p :D

    That is a great knife. I don't think very many people would look at that knife, even if it was not marked, and think of anyone else. I love your distinct style, it is an inspiration to me as a maker. Thanks for posting.

    That knife is just the right combination of everything.
    The Ivory is gorgeous, as usual.
