    I’m curious how many man hours went in making that dagger ?
    It is a stunning piece to be admired whether it’s being used or just having the bragging rights owning it.

    I'm a huge dagger fan...and I agree this is a unique and masterful interpretation of one!!

    In particular, the "tapering" fuller is especially nice - a feature rarely seen, but if you compare it side by side with a non-tapering fuller, it just looks "right"

    great job Nathan

    Foolin' with that math again I see buddy.... ;)

    Absolutely spectacular and another iconic integral from your extremely fertile mind. I can only imagine the balance and feel of that....and the grin on Paul's face when he opens the shipping container. :D

    Agreed on all accounts. I hope we get to see what Paul wraps this thing in!

    Hats off to Nathan, another outstanding example of your skill and complex thinking behind every single path the toolhead makes.

    That is the BOMB!
    Every comment has been right on and well deserved.
    A short video knife being waved around would be great if possible:)

    Coincidentally, I had not seen Nathan's clear photos on the RED background when I made my choice.

    This masterful knife calls for blood.... ;)
