    I finished this blade up the other day. I've been working on it for about a week, starting with three solid days of forge time.

    The blade is 12.5" and about 1.75" at widest, and 5/16" or so at the spine/ricasso. The clip is sharp most of the way.

    It is forged of 6 bars of twisted w's. The tip has been given the bird's beak weld treatment to preserve pattern flow, and the guard is forge welded on, in three pieces from the parent billet. The steels used are 1080 and 15n20.

    The handle is shaped from G10, with some lines that I borrowed from my dudes Jelle Hazenberg and Mareko Maumasi, both of whom sculpt kitchen knife handles excellently. Overall I wanted it to have the predatory yet sleek aspect of a panther, a shark, or even a fast motorcycle.

    I am asking $1400 plus shipping. Price includes laced-loop sheath with my own "star hex" tooling pattern, and lace bead in matching explosion damascus.
    NOW SOLD.

    Thanks for looking!
