    I've been trying out some new styles of filework and would be interested in comments on this one. The knife isn't finished yet so the filework is still a bit rough but the pattern is visible.

    I'd say simple and elegant. Nice pattern.

    Well Jason, the weather was bad and the fishing was worse! 6 guys, 3 rods each, day and night for 3 days and not even a bite between us!! Quite a few beers and a good laugh though.
    Here's a wee pic taken on the rare occasion that the rain stopped!

    Loch Treig next time!

    Very nice, I can appreciate it takes a lot of work to get something simple and elegant looking. Great stuff!

    It looks simple, but i found it more difficult than my usual patterns. I haven't seen this type of design on a knife before so i fancied giving it a whirl. It's maybe a bit art-deco but i quite like it.

    Thanks for the feedback guys!

    Long straight lines are definately harder to achieve and keep symmetrical, it looks great. You don't see much of that but Geoff Bos has done some next level filework in my opinion. Keep sharing your work, it's always worth a look.
