    @Ptpalpha @JasonJ - i feel guilty for that yet maybe that saved you form some nasty things (says me to cover my back :D) - you know stories from disasters when peoples survived due to loosing the key of the car or a broken shoe heel ;).
    I will be happy to make a knife for you anytime @Ptpalpha, you know that!

    All the best guys, God bless,
    Bogdan

    Don't feel guilty for me in this regard, I was just too indecisive! When I was looking for a new tv in 2012... I researched so long and hard that by the time I picked "the right one", they had discontinued that model because it was now 2013! Which worked out OK, because I got a better tv, the last of the great Panasonic plasma sets..

    @JasonJ - if this helps in any way i am the same too, even when i buy myself a pair of shoes the chances i don't like them once i get home are quite high :D
    But as you said with the 'TV story' good things can happen with this, so maybe we're not so weird ;)

    All the best, God bless,
    Bogdan

    And a new Aurochs - 10000 years old bog oak/mosaic pins/thin 'brick' liners

    All the best, God bless,

    Bogdan, it’s incredible!!!!!!!!

    I'm absolutely thrilled! It turned out better than I ever could have imagined. Thank you for a beautiful heirloom quality blade. (Although I'm sure it's so nice I won't want to give it up)!

    I still think it'd also look badass with black carbon fiber and GITD kirinite.

    The one thing that keeps coming to mind in looking at Bogdan's work is that it is so unique. No two blades are ever the same in terms of materials and various combinations. It's as if each knife is it's own child, related, but special in that there is no other exactly like it (until one of us likes what the other ordered, then orders a copy of it). In which case, we are essentially cloning babies.

    Wow, that got deep and creepy quick. :eek:

    NOICE! She's a beauty. The light shots make the kirinite look almost light-olive color, which goes great on a knife like that, then those glow shots! Holy cow it's amazing!

    Thank you boys for your appreciation! ;)
    @kairo - may it serve you well my dear friend!
    @JasonJ - indeed, my friend, it would look nice yet i run of CF as much as i can. Using a high tech respirator will only half solve the problem. The tiny razor sharp fibers that will escape the vacuum will settle into the workshop and once mask off, they will rise into the air and straigth into the lungs = no good at all :). On top there are 2 more reasons - super expensive at that thickness and super destructive for any non carbide drills/mills/bits so again expensive :)

    All the best boys, God bless,
    Bogdan

    Good points @BogdanS i hadn't considered the fibers in the air and the filtration and actual workspace requirements for dealing with something like carbon fiber.

    I'll see tomorrow if perhaps the site/page is cached on the WayBackMachine... If so, I'll repost the images.

    They truly are beautiful pieces of knife art.

    Here is a pic of an Artifact knife @BogdanS made. I really like the scales, so I saved this on my photo album.

    That is a very nice knife. I like the warm, contrasting woods. Also note the grain and coloration of the front piece, clearly thought out and cut from the same piece so as to match side to side. Excellent attention to detail.

    As always your appreciation is very much appreciate, thank you!

    Here we go with some new blades: an unique whittler wearing stylish shiny ivory corian and red liners, a slim carver in a marvelous rare european yew and polished black micarta and last but not least a puukko blade with a forged finish, exhibition grade yew burl that worth's a fortune and stainless fittings ;).

    All the best, God bless,

    Very nice!

    @BogdanS you should also post up pictures of your wife's wonderful leather work so we can see the sheaths that go with these blades.

    They deserve to be showcased as well.

    "Holy crap" is the polite way of putting what I said when I saw my Aurochs in a previous post too!

    Impressive knives for sure. We certainly have no shortage of excellent bladesmiths around this forum.
