    Nice knife! I know the owner was excited about it. That ivory is amazing, and I know first hand how Dons ladder pattern steel can shimmer in person. You can tell this blade does that.

    That is one awesome fighter! A great image, Caleb. That ivory took just the right amount of years in just the right soil just to go with Don's damascus. A superb fighter is born. :thumbup::thumbup:

    I thought this looked familiar but figured you had just made a duplicate, as if that is so easy to do.
  14. That damascus is killer! I'm sure it shimmers beautifully...

    That thing is wickedly beautiful!!! Great job on the pic (I can almost see the aforementioned shimmer). I like the way the background pulls out the blue highlights in the ivory. Well done to maker and photographer!

    Very nice photo Caleb.
    You can double click on the image and get a real good EnLARGED look at the Damascus and ivory.
    The butt end of the ivory is mesmerizing. The fighter is very light and fast and scary sharp.

    Wow. Some serious stuff going on.
    Reminds me of a pretty version of Steve Earle, one of my favorite musicians.
