    That is an incredible array of work, Phillip! Bravo, sir. :)

    I was lucky enough to score two of your knives on the secondary market this year and they have become some of my favorite knives (one of them is on my belt as I type this - a hidden-tang hunter in CPM1V with purpleheart handle).

    I agree, The W2/410 laminate chef knives are awesome. Your work is always super clean and aesthetically pleasing. I always enjoy looking at your knives, even with the drab backgrounds. :thumbup:

    I love this thread although it is really difficult to choose the knife I like best.

    Thanks everyone for your comments! I appreciate it.

    I have another knife to add. I finished it today, but most of the work was done last year, so...

    Haley, I looked at my coats and jackets, and they're all solid, dark, boring colors. But I did find this t-shirt. :)

    It's another kukri, obviously, but this time more along traditional lines. Except for materials.

    Ooh, now THAT is some great steel, grinding, and overall craftsmanship! Great year you had, Phillip.

    That 25,000 layered bowie is just beautiful as well as your FS knives. Hell their all really nicely made though. Congrats and here's hoping you have another great year of making these fine pieces.

    The 25,000 layer fighter and the Kukris are amazing but as a cook I absolutely love the paring knife. I bet it gets more use than any other blade.

    An impressive body of work. I suspect that Mr. Knight will be pleased to have provided inspiration for that beautifully rendered kukri. I also really like the camp knives, the chef's knives and, pradoxically, your mom's paring knife. Good luck in 2015.
