So, there we have it. ^^^ the above images are NOT my best visual quality, because I have reduced the filesize down to 50% quality. However, they are here and it's QUICK to post. This is key.

I will add images into this gallery daily, until I can't.

Thanks for viewing! Do they look acceptable to you?

I've been patiently waiting for this thread to come back. I'm so happy that you have decided to post here again even with all the CRAP that you have to endure to share with us. I'm sure all will agree we appreciate your time and skill. I for one don't use face brute, Insta ham or any other social media that has ultimately ruined the youth of our society!!
Thank you very much for taking the time to figure out how to share your work with us in the best and acceptable way to you!!!!! This just made my weekend.. Stay safe and healthy there and keep em coming!!!

France + Egypt + China + USA = WOW! There is a LOT of ancestry in this remarkable folder.⁠

The *amazing* knife itself is by the uber-talented Alexis @LecocqKnives from France. .⁠

The Theme, of course, is of Ancient Egypt and King Tutankhamen's artifacts.⁠

The Engraving artistry is from born-Chinese master engraver @CJCaiEngraving, who is an American Citizen living in Hawaii, USA.⁠

Knife provided and available or similar from Paul at @KnifeLegends.com_ What a privilege to capture!⁠ LeCocq_KL07.jpg

MORE than meets the eye... @JordanLamotheBlades joined with @SunAndStarsForge to create a rare MASTERFUL chef's knife through steel...⁠

Model: Oroshigane Chef knife⁠
BL/OAL: 7.5/12"⁠
Material: Oroshigane (hearth refined steel)⁠
Forged_by: Steel made by Emiliano Carrillo⁠
Bolster: Integral bolster⁠
Handle: Bog oak, copper spacer and pin⁠
Knife Comments: This knife is a collaboration of sorts: Emiliano made the steel, using a Japanese re-melting technique to refine iron into blade steel. This is an uncommon material in today's knives, due to the amount of work involved, and we are unaware of anyone ever using this material in an integral-bolster design.⁠
