This is the blade I made for the Masters of Fire exhibition in Macau China. I'm offering it allong with the beautifull exhibition catalogue.
It's curly maple and bronze with a 56 layer O1/L6 blade and the overall length is around 20" (14" blade 6" hilt)
$3200 US for knife and book
here are some more pictures http://www.powning.com/jake/availabl/availabl.shtml
thanks for looking

Jake,
That piece is phenomenal! I can see why it was in the exhibit. Wonderful work!

That's fantstic. I hope you don't mind me taking the opportunity to share some of the other photos of it. Each shows something different.

Jake's work is simply amazing.

I hope that when I'm back in the market to pick up more pieces from him.

Jake, one of these days you simply have to do a version of the Gae Bolga.

Yup - that's why he was in the Masters of Fire Exhibition.

Damn, Jake, I sure wish you still took commissions. That piece looks flawless.
Constant and true.
