Here's one that I FINALLY got finished :)

It's a turkish twist blade, African blackwood handle, and twisted W's pommel and nut.

I'm pretty sure Coop will be taking a better picture of it before too long :)

Thanks for look'n :cool:

I haven't got any inside sCoop yet. What I DO know is "How sweet it is!"

Very versatile, Nick. 2006 is going to be YOUR year! :thumbup:

That's just as sweet as can be. The only thing that knife needs is a matching 10" bladed companion. :)

No, what it really needs is to be mine. :)

If I counted correctly, I see 4 bars to the blade?

Wow, thanks everyone! :) Good way to amp up my birthday, seeing all these kind words. :D

Okay, so no Garssonizing is definitely high praise (he got his 2 cents in last year when I showed him the rough finished piece) :) ....

But being mentioned anywhere near the same breath as Jim Schimdt is as good as it gets! :eek: :D Schmidt and Fogg are the two guys that are always at the top of my <bladesmith heroes> list :cool:

Oh, and Ari, YEP, it is 4 opposing twisted bars, each one 120 layers.

Ran, the bolster area has two fine lines "cut" in that wrap all the way around it, with a groove filed in-between them on the sides. So, yep, it's all one solid piece :)

It was actually supposed to be a fighter (or so I thought) until it "showed me" it was destined to be a hunter ;) HA! :)

Thanks again everyone!
