    Better late than never....;)

    A trio of Edged Art from my friends Matt Roberts and Erik Markman.

    The top and bottom pieces were 2 of Matt’s JS Test Knives, which passed with flying colors, and a superb piece from Erik that I’m very happy no one wanted to take home...thanks Mary and Ryan for getting it to my home. :cool:

    Matt’s knives are the essence of perfection, if it ain’t absolutely right, it’s trash....he’s a Maker of very high standards.

    Erik’s Fighter is quite a bit different in style and finish than any of the previous pieces I have gotten from him....mirror-polishe here, satin finish there, exceptional Damascus (as always), plus a handle that could have been sculpted by da Vinci himself.

    The middle Fighter from Matt made it to my place, too....:D

    All are outstanding but the Markman is a great looking knife.

    All are incredible, but I think I like large Bowie with the Ram's horn the best.
