    I'm taking good care of it :)

    I am coming to appreciate how sharp 01 can get compared to A2 and the CPM steels. The wear resistance is lower, but it sure takes a nice edge.

    Thanks, Peter, you inspired me to take some time with lighting and framing a shot. Now, back to work...

    O1 is one of my favorite steels, for reasons of sharpening but especially battleship gray patina sooner than later. :)

    On the other hand, I do appreciate the more dramatic 'spalting' possible with A2 vs. O1....

    I can't stop looking at this picture. The perfect example of why I love osage so much.

    When you grow bored with this one, I know someone who will give it a warm, loving home.

    Love that Osage. I'm a bowhunter who took up traditional bows last year. An osage handled or scaled knife and a traditional bow just go together IMO.

    Hey Tony! That osage is aging very nice and you just can't beat the contrast with the blue stripes either. :thumbsup:

    ps Give it another 5,000 years and it will get nice and dark like Bog Oak.

    Dammit Jerry, now I'm going to have to get the Bog Oak out too! And I'm already over an hour late for an appointment.
