It's not often one makes it...being able to bask in the company of fellow wizards, etc. But Greg Pease chose to honor me with a mention in his most recent column...Ask GLP (or whatever it's called). lol

Here's a link to the section - scroll down to the photo of the knife, which accompanies his answer to my scholarly question dealing with the genesis and history of fellow bigwig, 'Ask Dr. Science'. Well, we all have our little areas of interest.

PS: The knife is one I made and is owned by Greg.

(very kind of him to recognize me in that way)

Cool! Very Happy I read the article on my Kindle last night at work, but it didn't have the picture of the knife you made. Good work, Blackhorse. I wish I could find a hobby/craft that I could enjoy doing and do it as well as you do. Congrats! cheers

A fine knife. I'm really impressed with your work.

How cool is it when the name you drop ... is your own?

I like how he avoided your question with the humor, grace poise of a ballerina ninja circus acrobat. Laughing

Sweet blade, by the way...looks like a perfect plug cutter!

My "Lesath Toothpick" bowie is downright dangerous cutting plug...even the plug whimpers when that thing is unleashed. Laughing

That there design you made for Greg is a hot little number--and I ain't much a knife guy (except cooking knives, not that I can afford them...)

Just to let all you characters know (and many thanks for the kind words, all) that silly thing took me over two months to complete. Of course, if I knew what I was doing it might have been two days. But I'd do one step and then sit there and look at it for a while and have to put it down til I figured out what I was going to do next and how. That's how I ended up taking look enough so that I figured out how to make the patterns in the damascus butt and guard work with where they were placed...and to find the photos online that clued me into making the handle and scabbard from one piece of Maple Burl (plus a variety of other materials as well).

The problem that I was most plagued by most was securing the knife in the scabbard, eventually solved by using the leather thong...the bead snugs down to hold it in place after it's been looped over the scabbard. Works well. I learned though. The next one I did (which I still have in hand) I knew in advance to make it so that the blade gained tension as it was inserted into the scabbard and is held firmly that way.

But just for fun...here are some added shots of the piece, since you've all been so kind...showing the scabbard a little better, and then the pieces of damascus and all.

The sheath makes it the complete package BH. The blade is sexy, but the wood sheath is just cool.
