[QUOTE=griffin81;1329542]Wow another top quality blade. So impressive your finish work is impressive. I hope to one day build true works of art like you do.
This is my latest build its nothing fancy but it is my first folder. I love old school, so I built this friction folder for my daily use. It's copper stainless and western walnut with a O-1 blade.
Listen to me now...I've looked at your work and you are doing an absolutely wonderful job in your craft. For someone who's been at it only as long as you have and doing the work you're showing already, I have no doubts you'll be without question headed for a Mastersmith at this. I'm sure I'm not alone in saying this but us "oldies" smile wide when we see those coming up behind us yearning to do the crafts and endeavoring to hone it to a level of perfection as you are. Don't stop, I truly enjoy watching you produce your work. Thank You for your kind words too.
I used to travel to Yellville Ark often and I've met some very good people down that way over the years as well as some darn good blacksmiths.
