Man alive. I dont know what you charge, but with your quality, I need to save, cause I have a knife I want made.

That is the perfect size and design for a hunting knife in my opinion.  Beautiful work.  What grit do you sand the blade to before etching it?
I started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left

at least 320 wet.
to just etch and leave grey.
if you wanna have a gloss finish go to 600 wet  and do a cold vinegar etch then rub out with semichrome polishing compound.

Very nice!  I'll have to check the cherry wood for scales!

Gorgeous!

I love the shape, the rough surface left on the flats, and the beautiful hamon.  That's some truly lovely work, there.
