Greetings all, My knife purchases these days are fewer and further between, but this was something of a special order. My daughter is a big fan of Sam's work, and like others who have had the privelege of meeting Sam in person, she's a big fan of Sam himself. So as a surprise high school graduation gift, I ordered a father / daughter matched set. The big knife (spoiler alert - that one's mine ) is Sam's extremely terrible Subhilt Tsavo in damascus and ironwood. The small intergal is hers. Both knives are absolutely stunning. Jeremy Guillaume was tasked to create the sheaths, and hit it out of the park as he always does. Love the fossil walrus frog studs. Working with Sam, Jeremy and Coop was an absolute pleasure - and a reminder that the best thing about the custom knife world is the people. But the most enjoyable part of the process was presenting my daughter with her gift - she had no idea it was coming and it couldn't have been more well-received. An absolute ray of joy in these less than joyful times. My thanks to all.
