    Those two knives are in a league of their own. The stainless wootz is amazing.

    Those two makers are arguably two of the best makers on the planet right now. Outstanding knives.

    Amazing detail on both pieces. Even clocked the screws on the frame.

    These are like the Quesenberry's...they just stun me...they manage to be art and tool in a perfect blend, w/o overdoing the embellishment...somehow little detail just works and seems to belong.

    those are some of the nicest knives I have seen in some time (months? since the first Queensberry dogbone I saw about 8 months ago).

    Beautiful and elegant looking work. I would love to know how they balance and move. I normally don't go in for screws on knives (I am old fashioned and I like rivets and such). But, there has to be an exception to the rule, right?

    awesome work, and photography.

    Stunning work, to be sure! In particular the clinical perfection yet lyrical style of the ivory handle and fittings with inlay really do it for me. The calligraphic quality of line width on that ribbon-like inlay looks super good with that blue-black background.
