Hello guys.
I've been wating for a couple of months for this one.
This is the first collaboration piece I make with silversmith Luis Chavez.
We decided to start with a short yataghan with a full silver handle.

I made the blade (5160-15n20 7 twisted bar turkish pattern) and ask Luis to do the rest.
This is what he came up with.
He completly blew mi mind!!!

Wow. Fantastic piece. I have to say, I was completely surprised when I to the spine shot. The knife did not look thick from the side.

I've seen some beautiful knives in my short life, and this is among the finest I've laid eyes on.
Sublime work on both your parts.
