Absolutely stunning. The style really reminds me of Gaucho knives you’d find all across South America.

Love the subtle recurve, the hammered pins, the engraving ! All of it ! What is the countersunk allen bolt for ? I just cannot guess it's purpose !

That Damascus is to die for. I know we don't want to give away Trade Secrets here but I got to know how that is done!! LOL
