Rounded, yet SHARP lines! I was *impressed* notably with the finishes on @GraysCustom Javan Roberts' Bowie!⁠

Every edge was CRISP. Every surface was finely brushed. All junctions were invisible. THIS maker is fastidious!⁠

Model: Envoy⁠
BL/OAL: 6", 11.6"⁠
Material: cpm154⁠
Bolster: 416 ss⁠
Handle: Mammoth tusk⁠

Ready, set, POUND! Holy moly.😱 Jason @EllardBlacksmithing produced this set of shaping hammers for the discriminant forger.⁠

Those handles have nice sharp edges to keep them registered in your grip.⁠

All this and a display stand also? Yes.⁠

'Wyoming Pronghorn' Bowie! 💪🏼 This Bowie from @KCaseyKnives exudes STRENGTH! ⁠

Kevin's 'feather steel' is unrivaled, and his collaboration with handle artist @PushkarevKonstanti ALWAYS gives me pause.⁠

The turquoise accents are tastefully placed! Kevin lives in Wyoming, so this is truly appropriate.⁠

'Goblin folder' by the late Jim Schmidt, MS. These unusual carved heads always on the root of a crown stag are testament to artistry and diversity.⁠

Larry Fuegen has many examples also. This had to have been made in the mid-nineties.⁠

No one NEEDS this. Everyone APPRECIATES this! LOL!⁠

Rich beauty! @Dellana's work is ALWAYS about organic flow, exotic materials, and luxury curves.⁠

Her usage of gold is characteristic in ALL of her work. The three 'Dellana dots' (Named for her from Jim Schmidt who was a mentor) are always a *bit* off in unison. That's her intention. Not linear. I like that.⁠

The dreamy Mother of Pearl is as fine as I've ever seen. The filework and backlock says "I'm a veteran at this!"⁠

I rarely get feedback from these posts, and I cannot tell if the 'view count' is growing, as it's STUCK at 3-million! HA! (A first class problem.)

LMK if you browse? Do these work for you? Is it a resource for Bladeforums?

Thank you.

Jim, I can't overstate how much I appreciate your photos. I hesitate to clutter the thread with Ohh Ahh, but please know that they are appreciated.

This thread is literally the best source on the internet for being able to view the best and brightest makers work in the custom arena. I have to say as well, your expert photography and staging have given me so much appreciation for different styles and makers that I would never have been exposed to. Please know that a lot of us who collect customs look at this like the catalogue of The Met.
