Loveless Fighter

This knife has a deep hollow ground double edged blade in the Loveless style and a frame handle. The blade is of a tight “W” Feather pattern Damascus as are the fittings. The scales are of premium Alaskan Mammoth Ivory, the domed pins are German Silver. I also made the Leather sheath. I heat treated the fittings so they would etch darker.

Knife Number 100

This is my one hundredth knife and my forty ninth sheath. The 12 1/4 inch re-curve blade is “W” Feather Pattern Damascus as are all the fittings. This is the longest feather pattern blade I have made to date with the previous being 9 inches long. The handle is premium Alaskan Mammoth Ivory. The domed pins on the clam shells and the handle are 18K gold. The frame on top and bottom have 24K gold inlays as do the front and rear spacers. There is a total of 25 inches of 24K gold in the fittings which is the most I have done on a knife. There are German Silver liners with file-work on them surrounding the handle frame and damascus spacers.

Vest Fighter #99

The 6 3/8 inch double-edged blade is forged from 1080 and 15N20 in a “W” Basket Weave Mosaic Damascus Pattern. The overall length of this Vest Fighter is 10 7/8 inches. The blade is a unique design for me due to the fact that it was forged from a damascus pattern that I have not made before and it has a fuller on both sides. The handle is made from Alaskan Mammoth Ivory. The fittings are of the same damascus pattern as the blade and the coined liners are of German Silver. The pommel, spacer and frame have been border cut. The damascus pattern in the blade has the most chatoyancy/shimmer I have made to date. This knife is the 99th knife I have made.
