Another beautiful (free hand) etched blade by yours truly. The video really doesn't do the knife justice. Its a real nuisance when the camera won't focus on the etched patterns because the light isn't hitting it at the right angle. You have to hold it in your hands and watch as different angles of light dance around the etched surface revealing the intricate and ornate patterns. This knife took me 25 - 30 hours total to complete, but it was all worth it. What I have created is an extremely beautiful, yet functional tool and or showpiece. The knife is a high end OEM D2 fixed blade with ribbed/scalloped dark emerald green and black Micarta slabs that feel great in the hand. It comes with a secure (locking/clicking with rivet holes) kydex sheath that wont let go of the knife even when shaken violently upside down. The blade has been sharpened with Japanese water-stones, starting with 600 grit and progressively working up to a 12,000 grit stone. This D2 holds a razor sharp edge for a very long time.
