Beautiful Art Knife by Salvatore Puddu with engraving by Brian Hochstrat

I understand this piece will be in David Darom's new book on engraved knives.  I hadn't really shot any pictures since I had it engraved so finally got it done.

Ragnarock 2 by Deryk Munroe

I have long followed the career of Deryk Munroe.  We first met at the Eugene OR show probably 20+ years ago.  He, along with his better half, Jana, was set up at a table behind a friend of mine.  I hung out there most of the show.  He had the most beautiful knife that was beyond my budget.  This was when Deryk was making "Art Knives".  I drooled over it the entire show.  I have since had many of Deryk's knives, his tactical pieces many of which you can see here;

This is a recent delivery that is quite spectacular.  It is the Ragnarock 2 featuring a blade of CPM-S35VN, 6AL4V Titanium frame, carved and copper inlaid backbar, copper inlays, Titanium screws, white Timascus pocket clip and a "Ghost" finish.

back from an amazing vacation so time to post up something new!

I got some really nice knives at the Blade Show but haven't had time till now to photograph any of them.  One of my favorites is from ABS Mastersmith James Rodebaugh.  I acquired a similar knife from James last year with a beautiful wood handle.  Knowing what I like James approached me with this knife the Thursday evening before the show and once I saw it I was hooked.  Here ya go...........

Outstanding Mammoth with deep blues and a touch of tan and brown coloring.  Check our the engraving James did around the guard.

James does his own sheaths and this one is slick in that it can work either right or left hand draw.

The Lochsa

The Lochsa folder is made from a solid piece of titanium.  The integral design has smooth flowing lines a contoured handle and it makes an impressive sounding “thwack” when you open it, it has the ergonomics and feel of a solid, working folder.  The Lochsa has developed a cult following and they are as rare as hen’s teeth.

This Lochsa has a blade of S90V, high polish finish, 14k thumb stud and the pivot has a Carbon Fiber overlay.
