I did this for a guy who was looking for an "Old" piece.

Not sure if it looks old, but I tried to dig up some old style ideas, and mix it with some new ideas

Damascus blade, distal tapered

Fittings are wrought iron, from a wagon wheel rim that hit these parts in the mid 1800's

Spacers are blue and white turquoise, and the body of the handle is ivory. I intentionally left it looking a little rough, some tool marks show, I may yet etch the wrought to discolor it some.

Thanks for looking...

That's a beautiful knife, Pierre!

Can't wait to see the other commissioned works in your repertoire.
