Here is a nice piece Shan-Aan (apprentice to Jody Samson) just finished.



She used some of Rick's pattern-weld and handmade the hilt components.

This is only her 5th knife, but she is learning quick!

Best,

Howy

I really like the blade's profile and the shape of the cross section at the base. Stylish!

I'm honestly not a fan of the damascus swirly blade, but the blade shape and hilt design is frigging awesome.
The pen is mightier than the sword, especially since it can get past security and be stabbed it into a jugular.
This site would be better if everytime I clicked submit... I got to hear a whip crack!

Wow that's gorgeous! I love how the swirl pattern on the grip somewhat matches that damascus pattern on the blade. Very well done!
