Here is mine. Made by Bjarne Rasmussen (Denmark)
The handle is made of reindeer antler.

It's beautiful Jean. I love the dark leather with the copper metal work, and the antler was an excellent choice. Good symetry and flow. The blade appears to be pattern welded, would you elaborate on its construction a bit?

Like we say in France (and probably elsewhere as well !): better a good picture than a long speech !

Thank you. That's the perfect pattern for that knife. Well done!
