    Coop's photos make your photos look like a burger king menu

    Coop's photo is amazing!
    What looks like a flaw in the grind in your second photo is gone.

    That is outrageously beautiful man!

    Can I ask, do you make the menuki yourself?

    I like your background better, and the almost perpendicular photos of your handle. Will you be making this style of Tanto in maybe a less exotic steel? John

    Thanks everyone!!!



    No, I don't - they're the only bits of my work I don't truly have a hand in.

    Yet.




    Not sure, but the idea of making a similar one that more aptly fits the idea of a 'dirty beater' has certainly been entertained.

    I am ALWAYS envious of Matt's work: Not just his knifemaking, but his crystal clear images. AA+

    For this one I studied hard. :) I went to my own website (KnifeGallery.com) and did a search of 'Gregory' to see what I'd done in the past...

    Lemme see: Red, orange, yellow, blackish, dark green, pointing up, pointing thataway, ummmmmmm.... BLUE! I haven't shot anything in BLUE pointing down...

    Off I go to grab the first blue one that comes to me. ;)

    It's all so very studied and complex. Right. Sometimes it works!

    *Thank you Matt!*

    Can I get one like this, with a little bit longer handle, maybe the blade a little longer 6-10”.
    Slight curve overall perhaps.
