custom knife for a gentlemen who is now my friend

Another custom knife for a gentlemen who I have now become friends with in Corvallis, Montana.  We only “met” on the phone and by e-mail, but felt a real connection and friendship.  I hope to meet him one day in person, hopefully in Montana—love me some Montana .  We worked together on all aspects of this knife—I actually hoped he wouldn’t want it—so I could keep it, LOL. Bud did a GREAT job on the sheath.  The blade steel is a 1095/15N20 wave pattern Damascus with a blade length of 4 3/4” and overall length of 9 5/8”.  Handle material is magnificent stabilized Pacific Madrone burl.  The fittings include:  1854 wrought iron guard with a copper spacer and mosaic pins.

Twisted rope pattern hand filework along spine.  Wood is highly figured and has tremendous depth.

Again, Bud did a wonderful job on this sheath.  The style is great and the color is perfect for the wood.
