a Barry Davis Art Knife

I have known Barry Davis for many years, our paths crossing at various knife shows around the country.  Barry is a quiet, unassuming guy who happens to make some very nice knives.  Barry's mentor was knife making legend Jim Schmidt and his influence shows in Barry's work.  I once again ran into Barry, this time at the recent Solvang knife show.  I was fortunate enough to win the opportunity to purchase one of Barry's knives in the lottery.  Here it is.

 The carving, close up shown below, was done by Daniel Stephan
Hope you enjoy looking
