    Nice choice on the pattern and the stag, as usual, is killer. Looking forward to your photos.

    Jake, that stockman is a real beauty :)

    Congratz for this great piece! The stag, the shape, the swedges... just amazing!

    **I was sent this 3.5" Ryu Kawamura Jess Horn Street Fighter Tribute in Burgundy Micarta to take photos of for a friend and I must say his work is phenomenal.

    Hand rub satin is just as nice as any I've ever seen with a signature nice touch of a high polish tang.
    An incredible swedge that generally leaves quite a bit of room for error is executed as you would expect from a maker of this calibre, perfectly.
    There's certainly a 'bank vault' like action upon opening this piece.

    I thought I had posted these, but that was in another thread. Here are some photos John took of my only Ryuichi Kawamura with engraving of Master Engraver Jon Robyn.

    Great job capturing the "grain" of the micarta and the finish on the lockback Tim, and Charles, that engraving is too cool! As an upland bird hunter, I love it.

    That Whittler is off the charts, Charles! Like Jake I spent many years hunting upland game birds. I really appreciate the work and artistry that went into that engraving. Of course you couldn't find a better canvas.

    These are images of my two fine knives by Ryu. (These had been posted previously but I no longer use the old hosting service so they were no longer available in this thread.)
