    Wow! Both are stunning: beautiful design, exemplary execution.

    I have to ask about the "s" stripe in the daggar. How'd you do that???
    Love the blued finish.
    Any chance you could post a close up of the daggar blade?

    There is 4 Billets that are forged together the "s" is a result of being the #2 billet in a set that was forged together , I did not make it to have it an S just a wave in the steel . that is the patten that showed up when it was etched out with acid . as for the Bluing it is Gun Bluing , A friend of mine shoots my Knife photos most of the time.

    Thank you folks for the good comments about them .

    Yep , they are all Work Horses and meant to be used , I love to see folks use them ...It gives me a bit of pride to see them in action ... some folks put them up and they never see day light again ;( but to each their own I guess.

    :rofl2: it is an obsession I started some 10 + years ago . as I hate junk knifes and like to produce knifes that are show and Go . they are not meant to cut bolts and crazy sheiot ! However ,any animal is fine and parts there of is fair game for mine .
