2017

One of my first Western style handles ever, this knife was a milestone build that led to all the new designs I’ve been working on since then. I had been doing my original tapered hexagon shape for years but wanted to venture out and expand my repertoire – Western handles were where I wanted to start.

The modern “coke bottle” shape carried itself up until now, still influencing my current shapes.

The blade features a substantially thick ricasso with a dramatic taper towards the tip.
