Wow! That's absolutely stunning!
I love the flow of your design, and your choice of materials and finishes. And the pattern-welded blade is fantastic, too!
Beautiful work!

This Springbok fighter is an exquisite piece of art, Richard. I think that this one would have also been a good choice for entry in the Masters of Fire Exhibition. In fact, I prefer your Springbok fighter over your contemporary damascus sword at the exhibit. Both beautifully conceived and executed, but the Springbok just appeals more to my personal tastes. I'm sure that either one would be well beyond my budget, but worth every penny!
