    Hi everybody :)

    After several weeks of work, I finished this project. It was quite challenging and I have to say that for me, it was the most difficult and sophisticated thing that I have made so far ☠️ Well, I hope the result is worth it :) The knife is called Succubus and in details it should also reflect the meaning of that name.:D

    Have a nice day and see you with more knives soon . :) bb Petr

    THAT'S impressive. :thumbsup:

    Very well done (and innovative) with the fluting matching the feather pattern. Bravo!

    That little “belt buckle” on the pommel is a cool little touch. Nice work!

    Wow. Just wow.

    Succubus- bright feathery pattern that is beautiful yet retains its branching and wandering as it chooses, lightly branching out to embrace the cutting edge; warmly inviting wood for touching and holding yet studded just enough to bite back some, and with sturdy beautiful grooves that also hints of blood-grooves? Just wondering.
