    Hi,

    I recently completed one long-term project. Work on this knife was challenging, but I think the result is worth it. The theme on the knife is Mexican Feast of the Dead.

    The biggest challenge were the flowers. There are inlayed in titanium and into each other. At first I thought I would use heat-painted stainless steel, but it didn't work out at all. In the end I used a more expensive/demanding solution and use zircuti from Fufuronforge :). I need to slice the material, create the shape, round the edges and put it all together.

    The rest is my classic :). Several layers of engraving, the inner scales are anodized and there is also a pattern on them. Zircuti standoff. I also played with screws and a box and there was also a cross on the neck included.

    Matej, another piece of art! How’s the dark series going? I’m loving mine, it has to be the smoothest flipper I have. When this virus is done I hope you will consider making something special for me?;):)
