Warren Osborne an exceptional Knife Maker

Warren Osborne is one of my favorite knife makers, his level of fit and finish is second to none and his sense of design is outstanding.  Warren has done several knives with inlays inside of inlays, usually pearl within pearl.  This pearl within pearl is very difficult to do but the effect, alone or combined with engraving, is spectacular.  Here are some examples;

Recently I approached Warren about using disparate materials do create an inlay within an inlay knife, specifically Lapis and Pearl.  Warren wasn't sure how this would work out, but, after consulting with Scott Sawby who encouraged the effort as doable, he gave it a shot.  I have now had a couple of knives from Warren done this way.  Here is the most recent which I am looking forward to having engraved.

Warren is one of the most talented knife makers on the scene today.  Check out some of his work.
