here is another one i just finished up for the ABS knife expo comeing up in San Antonio. http://absknifeexpo.com/

It has a 5 bar composite damascus blade of apposing twist of 19 layers per bar. 416 ss guard and spacers with fiber spacer material and a african blackwood handle. I am pretty happy with this one let me know what ya'll think.

Another stunning piece of work. Thanks for sharing.

Is there a name for that "blade shape"?

I don't know the proper terms for the blade, but I'm talking about that "rounded" part on the bottom towards the hilt and that "indentation" along the top of the blade towards the front.

I'm a fan of the blades of the past and that one you show reminds me of some of those I've seen in a book about US Civil War (or as we say in Texas "the war of northern aggression") blades.

not that i am aware of it is my rendition of a Loveless style chute knife only forged instead of stock removal.
