    Very cool! Thanks for posting these since I haven’t seen integrals with the carved and sculpted handles like this before. The newest dagger you got is sweeeeet.

    The newest piece is the clip-point jewel with hamon at the bottom of the second picture...Bob does a extraordinary job on these and his leather work is exceptional, too.

    I got this pair about 3 years ago and lost track of them, found them under some other things.

    I haven’t seen it or picked up my copy yet but i think it’s the dagger that’s in this (last) Knives Annual.

    I bet you’re happy! They are just stunning. Totally appeal to my taste.

    @Jsega51 ask @W. Anderson to show you his integral black pikal fighting knife. Amazing sculptured integral, looks like an alien stinger.

    Those are splendid - I've always wanted to build some of these but it just seems sacrilegious, like making a Ron Lake folder. I love Appleby's work.

    Most definitely can attest to Bob's work.. over the years, he has made more than 7 customs for me and I can tell you that he takes the knife notes I take from the voices in my head and brings them to life..
