    Here is a video of a piece from David Mirabile that was inspired by Jimmy Fikes and Don Fogg’s Jungle Honey / Cloud Cutter.

    The Baldric sheath was done by the great Paul Long

    It’s all in the video

    Big thanks to Jimmy Fikes for giving us his blessing

    Another wicked lookin blade from Mirabile and that sheath really compliments it nicely.

    Side note: That last photo needs eye of the tiger playing while viewing it!

    I was blown away how well it handles

    I’m old and have not cut steady in years ...... I was just getting up to speed when I ran out of mats :)

    So cool. I've wanted a Cloud Cutter since seeing one years ago.

    Nice to see makers putting their own spin on this.

    I may have missed it while watching the video, but what are the specs. Blade length, handle length.....spine thickness and blade height?

    Great video, Joe, the Dragonfly is incredible! I wished you'd filmed you opening the package from Paul, the smile must have been epic. Bet Jimmy loves this!!

    great work! and i love the video!

    one question though: why do you say that it is inspired by the jungle honey or the cloud cutter when there was a collaboration piece by don and jimmy that was actually called "dragonfly"?

    regards,
    hans
