    Hello friends, this is my latest completed piece. This knife was ordered by a customer looking for a version of some knives by the great Burt Foster. A piece that costed me a lot of work, but that in the end gave me great satisfaction.
    Burt himself enjoyed the knife and agreed on posting it here.
    The piece measures 430mm (17”) overall and 55mm (2.6”) wide.
    The 10 inches sanmai blade is composed of 420 stainless steel and 1070. W Turkish damascus bolster. Handle in exotic material and domed nickel silver pins. Buffalo leather sheath with alligator inlay and damascus steel clip in W turkish pattern.

    I don’t see anything wrong with that one! I bet the grip feels buttery smooth.
