whole this adventure started at the very beginning of 2006 year. Looking at some
knifes in Internet, I asked myself: "Do you think you can create something like
this' Michael?" The answer is obvious. So I took a cheep Chinese kitchen knife,
a beech tree branch and there it is. The very first knife in my life...
the way, my wife is still looking for her leather handbag.

first attempt wasn't much inspiring, so I tried again. The same materials, but
with turquoise inlay and the sharp side of the blade is bitten very slightly with
acid. The rest of it is made mat by hand.
- said my wife - You have two knifes and I am walking through that dangerous town
absolutely defenseless? Isn't it a shame?|

Blade of Chinese kitchen knife, handle of ash tree.
After all the exercises with Chinese material I decided to find
some more serious steel. 4x13 rust-free seem to be the best. So I bought a lot
of it. But this steel has a little problem. The temperature of hardening is over
1050 degree C. This led me to a furnace.
knife 4x13 is with half polished, half chemically matted blade. The handle is
bone, horn, wood combination with melhior inlay and white polymer. The
scabbard is from walnut tree.

at the same time disappeared my wife's old hand painted leather jacket. Can you
I tried for the first time some silver inlay in the wall nut handle and scabbard.
