    This one I made as a gift for a friend of mine. He is a doctor and this is why a snake and a cup.

    Last blade by Randal Graham from my stock. I hope he will be back to blade making soon...
    Handle - roasted curly maple and reindeer antler, sheath - reindeer antler and vegetable tanned leather.
    Sami style carving with artistic oil paint.

    Outstanding work in every dimension Roman. I say that because your carvings are looking more and more 3D. The snake and the wine glass intrigues me. MC Ecsher the next one!

    Thank you guys!

    The snake and wine glass along with red cross were very widely accepted as a symbol of medicine in the USSR, country where my friend and I grew up. Now these snakes with a stick are becoming more popular even though they are a symbol of Hermes, god of trade...

    That would be too much... :)

    not sure who Randal Graham is but if he is your blade supplier no longer.....................maybe the ideal time to take the plunge and start making your own ??
