the griffin is born! Had a lot of fun designing this one...hidden tang, sculpted wood handle, electro etching..... I call this one the tombstone griffin fighter knife. the etching were all hand drawn over masking tape and cut out using a exacto knife ..the voids filled in with nail polish....first attempt don't go so well, had to sand off and start again. the handle is sculpted out of one solid piece of maple burl oiled and buffed. bolster is brass. hope you guys like it! now on to the leather.
