I'm glad you were persistant. That one was worth waiting on to look at. Very nice.
Take care

That is a great looking knife, IMO! The 4 different colors/textures really set each other off nicely. The mirror polish on the blade and guard look "fancy" then the antler and wood look so nice and simple. Great use of contrasts, I think.

Don't believe I've seen any of yours before. If I've commented, please forgive my lousy memory. It ain't worth much at all. Anyhow, hope to see you posting more here soon!

Guys thanks for the comments, it sure makes an old want to be bladesmith feel good, and thanks again Peter for posting the pic for me. I have another one I'm about to finish, I sure wish I knew how you got it to post.

Thanks,
Bill
