    One of my best bud's wife commissioned this knife for him for their 1st anniversary.
    I also got to make their wedding bands. They're an awesome couple.

    I'm really pleased with how this one turned out.

    • my damascus [1084 + 15n20]
    • textured copper handle
    • bronze washers
    • stainless pin
    • leather pocket pouch

    • 7 1/2" open
    • 4 1/2" closed [including flipper]
    • blade is about 1/8" thick and 3/4" wide

    Hope you all like it.


    P.S. If I know you on various social networks don't say anything about this. He doesn't get it until Monday. Thank you.

    Hi Shelby, lotta great makers cut in logos with chisels or use stamps.....without a "mei", it might as well be production....and your work is too good for that.
