Truly a legendary knife and a privilege to make one! That said its definitely not the easiest!:sweat:

Best,
Neill

Wow........just beautiful! Making a knife like this correctly is very hard. You really have pushed your knifemaking to the next level.

Fabulous Neill.

Top, Top work hats of to you Neill. Love the curl to the guards and the way it flows with the finger grooves.. Utterly sublime... Now need to make some more knife tokens and get one for myself if possible.

That is beautiful indeed!

How much would that knife go for if to be sold?

This knife was made for someone who may not want the price revealed. PM Neill and ask him privately.

Neill, words Brother, words, no justice to your work.

I am embarrassed, I have not placed more pics of your work that I have, no camera to hold the same bar as your knives I suppose, I might have to commission Mike Carelse?

Look forward to more pics of your work. (and getting more knives)

An awesome piece there. Rocking Neill.

- took this with me to Knives UK.........very many oohs and aahs, to say the least.

Thing is, there's not many that look at this knife and realise the work that's gone into those grinds considering the size of the beast (a gnat's hair over 14" in total)

- you have no idea, Neill, how appreciative I am and how happy this knife makes me

You're breathing rare air, there, Paul.
That's an amazing piece. What a talent, Neill.

I was one of the privileged few who had the opportunity of holding that gem of a blade. Two things to note the balance and the weight of that blade, Balance is PERFECT, weight is not what you expect, its far lighter but then that may have something to do with the balance. That is possibly one of the finest knives I have had the privilege of handling.

When Paul pulled that blade out at my stand he was purring like a kitten?

Neill! You truly are a master, looking at that blade and holding it was a great motivator. Especially for me who is so far out of the way and has very little access to fellow knife makers. WELL done!

Thanks Paul

Best regards

Chris.
