Every year or two I like to make myself a knife to carry around and use to death. These are usually blades that I started to make for sale, but one way or another didn’t turn out good enough. (In other words, I screwed up somehow.)
This one has a pretty complex damascus pattern (Gordians Knot for the blades, opposing twist for the guard). It was disqualified because my makers mark was way off. Some of it is actually under the guard… The handle is african blackwood.
