The following pics are knives that I just got back from Joe Mason. Joe is a very talented engraver out of Mississippi. The first pic is pre Joe and you guessed it, second pic is post Joe. Tell me what you think.
The first knife is by Ron Frazier
The second knife is by Dean Roath
The third knife is by Mike Sanders

The engravings are very well done, but for some reason I like the 1st and 3rd knives much better than the 2nd.

I love the design of the second knife (Dean Roath?) Beautiful lines, and that drilled-out hole/choil is really innovative.

On the second knife, I told Joe that I did not want anything fancy, and not to remove the background.
Dean Roath is a Guild member from Louisiana.

Very nice work. The engraving gives all the pieces a lift, most so with the dagger.
