    Default I think this might be be *the* knife...

    Just finished, so one crap picture before I head off to work:



    Full size photo

    85mm blade by Pekka Tuominen.
    Desert ironwood burl and mammoth ivory, with nickel silver fittings.

    I'll add some better photos when I've done the sheath.

    Thanks for looking

    Nice proportions, nice colours and materials, nicely restrained decoration, and the blade choice looks excellent. I'd love to use a knife like that.

    Nice knife Peter, is it going to be a keeper. The one you sold me is going to have a brother, when I get round to it.

    Quite apart from looking beautiful, that looks eminently comfortable to use as well as practical

    Thanks to all All it has cut so far is leather, so I'll have play with it over the weekend.

    I've been promising myself a DI-handled knife for ages, and I think this one might just be a keeper

    Good job!
    Why did you made a little hole in the blade?
